Only Orange County hospital named as one of the most prominent and forward-thinking healthcare facilities in the nation

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 20, 2015 --- Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian has again been recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the “100 Great Hospitals in America.” Hoag has received this designation three times – in 2012, 2013 and 2015 – and is again the only hospital in Orange County to make the list.

Hospitals included on the list are home to many medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care and are stalwarts of their communities, serving as research hubs or local anchors of wellness. A version of this list has been published each year since 2011.

“We are honored to be recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review and be included with the most prominent and forward-thinking hospitals across the nation,” said Robert T. Braithwaite, president and CEO of Hoag. “This further reflects our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to this community.”

To develop the list, Becker's Hospital Review's editorial team conducted research and evaluated reputable hospital ranking sources, such as U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, Magnet® designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, The Leapfrog Group and several other resources. The final result is a group of 100 hospitals that are leaders in their region, their state and the nation in terms of high-quality patient care.
