Christiana Care has been named one of the 50 best hospitals in America by Becker’s Hospital Review.
“Each of these organizations has put patients’ needs first, driven a variety of innovations and helped to set the bar for high-quality care,” says the publication. “Each hospital has an impressive list of achievements and a story to tell.”
Christiana Care’s listing says: “The system has launched two health IT initiatives on meaningful use standards, utilizing its computerized provider order entry system and the nation’s first statewide health information network. It has an Aa3 bond rating with Moody’s Investor Services. In addition to other recognitions, Christiana Care received a three-star rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons in 2009 and the Ernest A. Codman Award from the Joint Commission in 2007.”
