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.

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 sources, including 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.
