CHI Hospitals among “65 Great Community Hospitals”


Memorial Hospital, Bardstown, KY; Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, Colorado Springs, CO; and Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center, Lincoln, NE, are on the Becker’s Hospital Review list of 65 Great Community Hospitals. The hospitals are recognized as high-performing leaders in patient care, clinical quality and community outreach. To compile the list, the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team analyzed data from numerous sources, including U.S. News & World Report, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and Thomson Reuters. To be included on the list, hospitals must have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs.
