Becker's Hospital Review has published the 2019 edition of "100 Great Hospitals in America," a collection of the most recognized, progressive and cutting-edge healthcare facilities in the nation. For the sixth straight year, Becker’s named Nebraska Medicine – Nebraska Medical Center to the prestigious list. And again, Nebraska Medical Center is the only hospital in Nebraska on the list.
Hospitals are recognized nationally for excellence in clinical care, patient outcomes and staff and physician satisfaction. These institutions are industry leaders that have achieved advanced accreditation and certification in several specialties. The list also includes industry innovators that have inspired trends in healthcare technology, hospital management and patient satisfaction. A version of this list has been published each year since 2011.
“This is a meaningful achievement, given the high regard for Becker’s,” said James Linder, MD, CEO of Nebraska Medicine. “It’s tangible proof that the care being provided by the thousands of colleagues who work here is among the best available anywhere in the country. People living in our region have convenient access to an amazing asset for both primary and advanced specialty care.”
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, CMS star ratings, Leapfrog grades 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.
