Newsweek and its global research partner, Statista, named the Ambulatory Surgery Center at Liberty Hospital a Top Ten Best Ambulatory Surgery Center for 2022 in the state of Missouri, and one of America’s Best. The research project evaluated expert assessments as well as performance data including a reputation score and key performance indicator data score for more than 4,600 ambulatory surgery centers across the country.

Additionally, for the second consecutive evaluation period, Liberty Hospital has received an “A” grade for its dedication to patient safety from The Leapfrog Group, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from preventable medical errors, injuries and infections. Among hospitals in the Northland, Liberty Hospital was ranked the highest for safety by The Leapfrog Group two years in a row.

"We appreciate the commitment of our providers and staff to keep our patients safe,” said President and CEO David Feess. “I am truly proud of our team as we continue to set high standards and elevate our performance to meet the growing need for high-quality care in the Northland.”
