ChristianaCare’s Christiana Hospital is named among the 100 great hospitals in America by Becker’s Healthcare in the 2020 edition of its annual recognition.
The hospitals on this list are acknowledged for excellence in clinical care, patient outcomes, and staff and physician satisfaction. “These institutions are industry leaders that have achieved advanced accreditation and certification in several specialties,” according to Becker’s Hospital Review.
The list features industry innovators that have sparked trends in health care technology, hospital management and patient satisfaction.
Becker’s Healthcare selected the top 100 hospitals for inclusion based on analysis of ranking and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report’s 2019-20 rankings, CareChex, Healthgrades, CMS star ratings, Leapfrog grades and IBM Watson Health top hospitals. Becker’s also sought nominations for this list.
This list was compiled and developed before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. The information included in each profile is based on pre-COVID-19 data available to Becker’s.
The recognition comes on the heels of several other quality achievements during the past 12 months for ChristianaCare:
