Swisslog, a leading provider of pneumatic tube systems and pharmacy automation solutions for hospitals, is proud to have installations in 17 of the 19 "Honor Roll" facilities.
According to the magazine's website, data was analyzed on more than 5,400 medical centers to produce this year's 16 speciality rankings. Only 170 were ranked in one or more specialties. To be in the top group of "Honor Roll" institutions, a hospital had to achieve high scores in six or more specialties.
