List features biggest names in American health care
Becker's Hospital Review has published the 2018 edition of "100 Great Hospitals in America," a compilation of some of the most prominent, forward-thinking and focused health care facilities in the nation. For the fifth straight year, Becker’s named Nebraska Medicine – Nebraska Medical Center to the prestigious list.
Hospitals included on the list 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 sparked trends in health care technology, hospital management and patient satisfaction. A version of this list has been published each year since 2011.
“It really does mean a lot for us to be included on this list,” said Dan DeBehnke, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Nebraska Medicine. “We have thousands of people working to provide serious medicine and extraordinary care to each of our patients every day. It’s rewarding to see that the work we’re doing here places us among the elite institutions that are the most recognized names in the industry.”
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.
