Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH), a member of Mountain Health Network, today announced that it is one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2023. According to new research released by Healthgrades, this achievement puts CHH in the top 2% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance across the most common conditions and procedures. CHH is the only hospital in West Virginia to be named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals in 2023, and this is the fifth consecutive year the hospital has been among America’s 250 Best Hospitals (2019-2023).
“As a member of Mountain Health Network, Cabell Huntington Hospital is committed to improving the well-being of all we serve,” stated Kevin Yingling, R.Ph., M.D., F.A.C.P, CEO of Mountain Health Network. “This recognition reflects our ongoing commitment to quality, which is more important than ever when considering the pandemic’s impact on our health care communities these past few years. We are extremely grateful to our hospital staff members for their dedication to providing highly reliable care to families in our region.”

This culture of quality and patient safety is shared by everyone at Cabell Huntington Hospital, and is also demonstrated throughout Mountain Health Network. We are thrilled to be recognized for our collective efforts to provide advanced medicine and compassionate care to those in our Tri-State region.”
Healthgrades reports that from 2019-2021, patients treated in hospitals that achieved the top 100 honor, on average, had a 25.5% lower risk of death than if they were treated in hospitals that did not receive the award, as measured across 31 rated conditions and procedures where mortality is the outcome.
