CentraCare – St. Cloud Hospital has been named one of the top hospitals in the United States by Newsweek in their 2021 “World’s Best Hospitals” list.

CentraCare – St. Cloud Hospital ranked No. 45 in the nation on the list and No. 2 in Minnesota.

Newsweek partnered with Statista, a global data market research firm, to develop its rankings. They used three general categories of data — a survey of 74,000 medical experts, publicly available patient satisfaction data and publicly available quality data. According to Newsweek and Statista, the purpose of the rankings is “to provide the best possible data-based comparison of hospital reputation and performance.”

“We sincerely appreciate the award, because it recognizes the tireless work of our staff, advanced practice providers and physicians to provide an unsurpassed level of care to this community,” said Joy Plamann, CentraCare senior vice president, and president of St. Cloud Hospital.

According to Newsweek and Statista, the hospitals named in this list—which covers 25 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and Canada —stand out for their consistent excellence, including distinguished physicians, top-notch nursing care and state-of-the-art technology.
