"Constant improvement is the cornerstone to providing high quality, compassionate health care. Doctors Memorial Hospital has exemplified this statement by consistently making improvements to its facilities and services for more than 50 years."

Soliant Health, a leading specialty healthcare staffing provider and part of Adecco Group, is proud to name Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay, Fla. as Soliant’s Most Beautiful Hospital in the U.S. for 2016.

For its eighth year, Soliant opened up an 11-month long nomination period to hospitals across America to see which hospitals reign supreme in beauty and community support. The nomination period collected more than 70 entries, the most diverse set to date. Only four states this year had multiple hospital nominations while the rest of the hospitals were the sole representatives of their states.

The subsequent month-long voting period resulted in nearly 200,000 votes, almost 40,000 of which were for 2016 winner Doctors Memorial Hospital in Bonifay, Fla. The hospital earned a spot on Soliant’s Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the U.S. for the fourth time, ranking 6th and 3rd (twice) in years past.

Located at the heart of Florida’s Panhandle, this critical-access hospital facility is notable for its innovative design, a from-the-ground-up rebuild of its 1958 namesake. The new space, completed in 2008, is twice the size allowing it to even better serve the community that it has served for more than five decades. The hospital is split into two components: business and medical services, preserving patient privacy from public business operations. A spine unifies these components and allows for a simplified way-finding experience and easy hospital access during and after business hours.

Doctors Memorial Hospital runs on a fully certified Electronic Health Record system that with its bold new look helped the hospital earn the Excellence in Construction Merit Award and the National Seal of Approval by the Joint Commission.

“What an honor to be named the most beautiful hospital in America! We have so much to be thankful for at Doctors Memorial Hospital and consider it a privilege to serve our supportive community,” said JoAnn Baker, Administrator of Doctors Memorial Hospital. “Our patients love the new facility we have built for them and our staff and volunteers exemplify our ‘Caring Hands, Caring Heart’ motto every day. Ultimately it is great teamwork that makes a beautiful hospital and we take great pride in recognizing the staff of Doctors Memorial Hospital.”

“Constant improvement is the cornerstone to providing high quality, compassionate health care. Doctors Memorial Hospital has exemplified this statement by consistently making improvements to its facilities and services for more than 50 years,” said David Alexander, president of Soliant Health. “We are proud to harness the influence our Most Beautiful Hospitals in the U.S. rankings to recognize excellent smaller, critical access hospitals like Doctors Memorial in a big way.”
