Becker's Hospital Review Names 100 Great Community Hospitals for 2016

Share Article

Becker's Hospital Review is pleased to release the 2016 edition of its "100 Great Community Hospitals" list.

The hospitals on this list are spread across the country, some not far from major metro areas and some in rural communities. Regardless of location or whether they are affiliated with a major system, these hospitals are vital parts of their respective communities.

Becker's has published a version of this list annually since 2011. This is the fifth year the list has included 100 hospitals. For the purposes of this list, Becker's defines a "community hospital" as one with fewer than 550 beds that have minimal teaching programs.

The Becker's editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, CareChex, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Leapfrog Group. Included organizations have earned recognition from one or more of these organizations.

The full "100 Great Community Hospitals | 2016" online list includes individual profiles of all organizations.

The full list can be read here.

Note: This list is not an endorsement of included hospitals, health systems or associated healthcare providers, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list. Organizations are presented in alphabetical order.
