Christiana Care makes 100 Great Hospitals list

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

According to Becker’s, hospitals on the list have “a strong foundation of high-quality care, stellar credentials and a focus on doing what is right for the patients in its community. They are home to many medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care and are stalwarts of their communities, serving as research hubs or local anchors of wellness.”

Becker’s highlights Christiana Care’s 2014 Best Hospital ranking by US News & World Report and its most recent Truven Health Analytics 100 Top Hospital ranking and selection as one of 17 U.S. hospitals to earn the Everest Award. The publication also spotlights Christiana Care’s Neuro Critical Care Unit and certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

To develop the list, the Becker’s uses several reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, Truven Health Analytics, The Leapfrog Group and Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The list is not a ranking. The website displays hospitals in alphabetical order.

The magazine also considered questions such as “Would you take a loved one here for care? Would this hospital be on a short list of places to visit for an important procedure or health issue?”

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