KIRKLAND, Wash. - (July 19, 2010) - To separate the routine hospitals from those that excel in a specialty area, U.S. News and World Report conducted a survey of almost 5,000 hospitals to develop this year’s “Best Hospital” rankings.  As the mission of the U.S. News ranking has remained the same for the past 21 years - “to help guide patients who need an unusually high level of hospital expertise” - so has a similar one at Fairfax Hospital, which earned recognition on the “Best Hospitals” list among the top psychiatric hospitals in the nation.

For this year’s ranking, 4,852 hospitals were surveyed by a random sample of 10,000 physicians across the country, highlighting respective specialties in 16 categories, from cancer and heart disease to urology and orthopedics, as well as psychiatry.  Fairfax Hospital, a Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. (PSI) (PSI) facility, was named among the top 160 psychiatric hospitals in the nation based solely on its reputation among physicians. 

Twelve of the 16 specialties are driven largely by hard data based on the facility’s mortality index and surveys completed by the American Hospital Association.  But because mortality data is not a relevant measure for ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation and rheumatology, hospitals specializing in these four areas were ranked based solely on reputation for treating difficult cases in the respective specialty. 

“It’s a real honor to have the reputation as one of the top psychiatric hospitals in the country,” said Ron Escarda, chief executive officer at Fairfax.  “We work hard every day to focus on patients and build strong relationships with the community and healthcare providers so we can continue as the region’s premier provider of behavioral health and substance abuse services.  This is a real validation for Fairfax, our approach to care, and the quality of our staff and programs.”

Fairfax currently provides a full spectrum of mental healthcare programs, and addiction and recovery treatment services through a variety of treatment plans for children, adolescents and adults tailored by age and degree of necessary treatment through both voluntary and involuntary admission.
