PHH among 100 Great Hospitals for fourth year

Posted: Friday, August 3, 2018

Parkview Huntington Hospital (PHH) has been recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the 100 Great Community Hospitals in 2018. The list of selected hospitals was announced by Becker’s Healthcare in the July 28 issue of Becker’s Hospital Review. This is the fourth consecutive year that PHH has received this recognition.

The 100 Great Community Hospitals list includes independent community hospitals as well as facilities affiliated with large health systems. Some hospitals serve expansive rural areas, while others care for small communities outside of large cities. Many of the hospitals have been recognized for their clinical and operational excellence and economic impact on the surrounding areas. For the listing, a “community hospital” was considered to be a facility with 550 or fewer beds.

“We’re proud to be a 36-bed hospital that is consistently outperforming much larger facilities across the country,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “Focusing on innovation, the highest-quality care and a superior patient experience, our team is dedicated to providing an ever-wider range of treatment options and wellness resources close to home for Huntington County residents. For example, the current expansion of our Rehab and Wellness Center and the addition of a state-of-the-art wound clinic in the coming months will provide a real advantage for community members who might otherwise have had to travel for certain types of specialized care. It is so rewarding to receive this important recognition from a healthcare industry monitor like Becker’s Hospital Review.”

Hospitals were chosen for inclusion in the list by the Becker’s editorial team based on a number of rankings and organizational ratings, including IBM Watson Health™ 100 Top Hospitals®, iVantage Health Analytics, and The Chartis Center for Rural Health’s Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals, as well as CareChex ratings, Leapfrog Group grades, Healthgrades awards and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services star rating program, among other considerations, such as a hospital’s reputation for leadership and innovation.

Among other recognitions, Parkview Huntington Hospital has received IBM Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals honors six times and for the past five consecutive years. The hospital has a five-star CMS rating, and has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Indiana for 2018 by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
