Fayette Medical Center Again Named among World’s Best Hospitals

(March 12, 2021, Tuscaloosa, Alabama) For the second year in a row, Fayette Medical Center has been included in Newsweek’s list of the World’s Best Hospitals.

Newsweek, in partnership with Statista Inc., released its 2021 list of the World’s Best Hospitals this week, and only four Alabama hospitals made the list. Like last year, Fayette Medical Center received the second highest rating in the state after UAB.

Fayette Medical Center, located in Fayette County, has been part of the DCH Health System since 1984 and includes 61 licensed hospital beds and 122 long-term care beds.

“We are so proud of the team at Fayette for this accomplishment,” said Bryan Kindred, president and CEO of the DCH Health System. “The hospital and LTC facility have long been well known in the community for both excellent care and patient satisfaction. However, it is so gratifying to see them be recognized by peers and patients as among the best in the world as they work so hard for the community and are truly deserving of this honor.”

Hospitals included in this year’s list were evaluated on three areas: recommendation from peers, patient experience and key performance indicators.

Peer recommendations were taken from results of a survey of doctors and other health care professionals. Patient experience data looked at patient survey topics such as overall satisfaction, likelihood to recommend the hospital to others and satisfaction with quality of care and service. Key performance indicator data reviewed included quality of care and patient safety.

The Lewis and Faye Manderson Cancer Center, which is an MD Anderson Cancer Center Network Certified Member, hosts a clinic at Fayette Medical Center on a regular basis. Additionally, the hospital offers full-service diagnostic imaging, ICU, swing-bed rehab, a wide range of surgical services and a family medicine clinic.
