St. Luke’s ranked among 100 top hospitals


St. Luke’s University Health Network has been named to Premier’s 2024 PINC AI 100 Top Hospitals list published by Fortune magazine.

This is the 10th time in a row and the 12th time overall that St. Luke’s University Hospital has been recognized among the 100 Top Hospitals in the United States. St. Luke’s is the only health network in the greater Lehigh Valley region to ever earn this distinction.

The 100 Top Hospitals ranking, conducted annually since 1993, is the most prestigious honor for hospitals in the United States. It is based entirely on objective data and also as top performers are not subjected to the exorbitant, pay-for-play promotional fees associated with recognitions from other organizations such as U.S. News & World Report.

PINC AI, the technology and services platform of healthcare consultancy Premier, Inc., has identified the top hospitals from a rigorous evaluation of 2,601 acute care, non-federal hospitals in the U.S., recognizing excellence in patient outcomes and quality as well as operational efficiency, financial health and community impact.

In Pennsylvania, a total of only six hospitals earned a place on the 100 Top Hospitals list. Three of the six are St. Luke’s campuses:

St. Luke’s University Hospital, which comprises the Bethlehem, Allentown and Sacred Heart campuses, was recognized among the 15 best Major Teaching Hospitals. No other hospital in the Major Teaching category this year has been named to the list more times than St. Luke’s.St. Luke’s Anderson Campus was recognized among the 25 Best Teaching Hospitals.St. Luke’s Miners Campus was among 20 winners in the Small Community Hospital category.
