Becker’s Hospital Review has included EvergreenHealth on its 2017 list of “100 Great Community Hospitals,” honoring the health system for the second year in a row for serving as a pillar in its community by providing key health care services to patients across the region.

Becker’s Hospital Review evaluates hospitals across the nation based on quality of care, degree of patient satisfaction, economic impact on surrounding areas, and overall excellence of health care service. The publication’s editorial team considered key awards, rankings and certifications, as well as reputation for leadership and innovation, when selecting hospitals for inclusion.

“This is a special recognition that reflects our tireless commitment to this community and the dedicated team of providers, staff and volunteers who live our mission each day to enrich the health of our patients and families,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte in a press release. “We are honored to be recognized on the list of Great Community Hospitals, and we’ll use it to reaffirm our commitment to our mission by striving to deliver the highest standards of care to all those we serve.”

Becker’s Hospital Review defines a community hospital as one with fewer than 550 beds, and with minimal teaching programs. EvergreenHealth was also included in 2016’s list, and in both 2016 and 2017 was the only health system in Washington state to be named.

EvergreenHealth, with its network of two hospitals, 1,000-plus medical staff and 250 employed provider medical group, urgent care centers, home care and 24-hour Nurse Navigator & Healthline, has also been recognized as among the top 100 hospitals in the nation by Healthgrades and Truven Health Analytics. Earlier this year, Becker’s Hospital Review also highlighted EvergreenHealth on its list of 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.
