Named One of 65 Great Community Hospitals by Becker's Hospital Review

Friday, June 24, 2011

Becker's Hospital Review has published its list of 65 Great Community Hospitals, recognized as high-performing leaders in patient care, clinical quality and community outreach. Augusta Health in Fishersville, Virginia is one of the hospitals selected.

To compile the list, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team analyzed and reviewed data from sources including the US News & World Report, HealthGrades, American Nurses Credentialing Center and Thomson Reuters to identify remarkable hospitals. For inclusion on this list, hospitals needed to have fewer than 550 patient beds and minimal teaching programs.

Becker's Hospital Review is a bimonthly publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Its content is geared toward high level hospital leaders and includes hospital and health system news, best practices and legal guidance.

Augusta Health is an independent, nonprofit community hospital with a mission to promote the health and well-being of our community through access to excellent care. In 2011, Augusta Health is the only hospital in Virginia to be recognized as a 100 Top Hospital by Thomson Reuters, receive both the Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence and Patient Safety Awards from HealthGrades, and be named a finalist for the Foster G. McGaw Prize from the American Hospital Association for community service.
