Charlotte, N.C. – In the last month, Tryon Medical Partners is honored to have achieved several prestigious statewide and national rankings for medical excellence. Among these recognitions, Castle Connolly Top Doctors recently announced that Tryon was the #2 Top Physician Practice for primary care in the nation, and #1 in the same category for North Carolina. On May 14, 2024, U.S. News & World Report announced its first ratings of the best ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in the country citing that Tryon Endoscopy Center received, “a high performing rating for colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures.” These two national honors are the most recent additions to Tryon’s lengthy list of accolades.

Castle Connolly also ranked Tryon in the following categories:

“While we are humbled by these accolades from our peers and medical experts, we know that the ultimate measure of success is to be the first choice for our patients, year after year,” said CEO Dr. Dale Owen. “We cannot thank them enough for their support.”

Castle Connolly Top Doctors is a publishing organization focused on healthcare research and information services, which publishes an annual list of Top Doctors in the United States. This ranking recognizes the top 7% of physicians in the country, based on important criteria including professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history. The Castle Connolly Top Doctor selection process is entirely merit-based. Doctors cannot pay to be listed on the Castle Connolly website or in any other lists. Top Doctors must also first be nominated by a peer. More information on Castle Connolly’s selection process can be found on their website.

U.S. News & World Report is a global authority in hospital rankings and consumer advice. They partnered with CareJourney to rate nearly 5,000 ASCs across the country based entirely on objective, risk-adjusted measures of their patients’ outcomes, including how successfully they avoided complications, ER visits, unplanned hospitalizations and other undesirable outcomes. To ensure fair comparisons among ASCs, the analysis accounted for patient factors, including pre-existing conditions. U.S. News & World Report awards the designation of “Best Ambulatory Surgery Centers” only to the highest-rated surgical centers that satisfy U.S. News’ statistical assessment of performance; fewer than 15% of evaluated facilities earned a “High Performing” rating. More on their methodology can be found on their website.
