Becker’s Healthcare has named its “Top 100 Great Community Hospitals for 2018.“
According to Becker’s, “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. 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.”
Hospitals are selected for inclusion based on several outside rankings and ratings organizations (read more).
Applauding safe, quality care
Compass Clinical Consulting is pleased to see recognition of excellence in clinical quality & operational excellence and congratulates all of the organizations selected, with a special recognition of HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese:
HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese (Ill.). St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese is part of Hospital Sisters Health System’s Southern Illinois division. The first St. Joseph’s opened in 1897 and was later replaced by a new 103-bed facility in the 1960s. HSHS St. Joseph’s Breese continues to grow with a $9.4 million outpatient surgery expansion and hospital renovation project. HSHS St. Joseph’s Breese is also expanding in other ways. Last February, it partnered with St. Louis-based SSM Health Cardinal Glennon to expand its neonatal telemedicine offerings, and it now hosts three nurses for 18-week residency training through the HSHS Southern Illinois Division’s new RN Residency Program.
