CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 31, 2018
Becker's Healthcare is pleased to release the "100 great community hospitals | 2018" list.
This list includes independent community hospitals as well as facilities affiliated with large health systems. Some hospitals serve expansive rural geographies, while others care for small communities outside of large cities. The hospitals continue to grow in many communities, opening new departments and sites to improve access to care.
Many of the hospitals have been recognized for their clinical quality, operational excellence and economic impact on the surrounding areas. For the purposes of this list, Becker's defines a community hospital as a facility with no more than 550 beds.
The Becker's editorial team accepted nominations for this list and selected hospitals for inclusion based on several outside rankings and ratings organizations, including IBM Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals, iVantage Health Analytics and The Chartis Center for Rural Health's Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals, CareChex ratings, Leapfrog Group grades, Healthgrades awards and CMS stars, among other considerations.
Becker's Hospital Review has published a version of this list since 2011.
The full list features individual profiles of all hospitals on the list.

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