Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital has again been ranked No. 2 among the state’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.

It was outranked by University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, which has been ranked first 25 of the past 26 years.

Providence Sacred Heart also landed the No. 1 spot in rankings for best hospital in Eastern Washington, and was given a “high performing” award in seven areas, including heart failure, hip replacement, knee replacement and lung cancer surgery.

As the state’s second-largest hospital, Providence Health Center has 719 licensed beds and an additional 160 beds in its children’s hospital.
