  • Nationally ranked in one of the 12 data-driven Best Hospitals specialties

Additionally, the medical center has earned a Four-Star Rating from Medicare, an “A” rating for hospital safety from Leapfrog and Planetree Gold Certification, among other awards.

“Quality, safety and service are at the core of our mission,” Wiltermood added. “Organizations that rate hospital performance are taking note that we do not compromise our standards when it comes to providing the best possible care for our patients.”
