Mon Health Medical Center Named High Performing Hospital for COPD Amid West Virginia’s Soaring COPD Levels

Posted Date: 1/23/2024
West Virginia is among the 11 states with the highest prevalence rates for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). As COPD continues to be a rising issue for West Virginians, Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown stands as a leader in its life-saving treatment.

In August 2023, U.S. News & World Report named Mon Health Medical Center to its 2023-2024 Best Hospitals as a High Performing hospital for COPD. This is the highest distinction a hospital can earn for U.S. News’ Best Hospitals Procedures & Conditions ratings.

“For 34 years, U.S. News has provided data-informed rankings to help patients and their doctors find the best hospital to treat their illness or condition,” said Ben Harder, Chief of Health Analysis and Managing Editor at U.S. News. “Fewer than half of evaluated hospitals earned any High Performing rating. Hospitals that are High Performing have excelled in providing high quality care in specific procedures and/or conditions.”

According to the American Lung Association of West Virginia, 186,185 adults have been diagnosed with COPD in the state and 1,546 people die each year from the disease. While this disease currently has no cure, Mon Health Medical Center stands as a beacon of hope with the gold standard of its treatment.

Mon Health Pulmonary Care is equipped with a comprehensive team of providers able to diagnose and treat respiratory conditions and diseases, such as COPD. The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at Mon Health provides a specialized program to help COPD patients achieve an improved quality of life.

“At Mon Health Pulmonary Care, we treat each patient and their condition with intentional, data-driven care,” said Dr. Andrezej Jaworski, Pulmonologist at Mon Health Medical Center. “We are on the cutting edge of COPD treatment and are always striving for excellence in healthcare delivery for the benefit of our patients.”
