Christiana Care named one of America’s 100 Great Hospitals

Becker’s Hospital Review has named Christiana Care Health System to its 2014 list of 100 Great Hospitals in America, a compilation of the “most prominent, forward-thinking and focused health-care facilities in the nation.”

According to the publication, hospitals on the list are home to many medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care and are stalwarts of their communities, serving as academic hubs or local mainstays.

The publication highlights Christiana Care’s U.S. News & World Report ranking as the No. 1 hospital in Delaware and as one of the top 50 hospitals in the country in gynecology for 2013-14. Becker’s also includes Healthgrades’ recognition of Christiana Care in 2014 for excellence in general surgery, orthopedic surgery, spine surgery, pulmonary care and overall clinical excellence, the latter of which means it performs in the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide.

To develop the list, Becker’s Hospital Review’s editorial team conducted research, considered nominations and evaluated reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades and several other resources. The list is not a ranking. The website displays hospitals in alphabetical order.

Becker’s Hospital Review is a monthly publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems.
