Hoag has again been recognized by
Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the “100 Great Hospitals in America.”
This is the
fourth year (2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016) Hoag has received this designation and is
again the only hospital in Orange County to make the list.
The hospitals on this list are well-known for a multitude of reasons, such
as having a strong history of
medical innovation, providing top-notch care to patients, leading clinical advancement with
forward-thinking research or holding an irreplaceable spot in their communities.
“We are proud to be recognized once again by
Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the ‘100 Great Hospitals in America’,” said
Robert T. Braithwaite, president and CEO of Hoag. “It’s an honor to be included with the most prominent and
forward-thinking hospitals across the nation and highlight our commitment
to delivering the highest quality of care to this community.”
To develop the list, the
Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals based on rankings and awards from reputable
U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the American Nurses Credentialing
Center and The Leapfrog Group, among other resources.
The final result is a list of 100 hospitals considered overall healthcare
leaders in their region, state or the nation.
