America’s 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery AwardEnloe Earns Top Marks

Medical Center Recognized for Quality

Despite the challenges 2020 brought, Enloe Medical Center stood out for quality and safety — earning several recognitions from trusted organizations, including The Leapfrog Group, U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, and Newsweek.

The Leapfrog Group

The Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization committed to health care quality and safety, gave Enloe Medical Center an “A” for the spring 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. This national distinction recognizes Enloe’s achievements in providing safer care.

Developed under the guidance of a national expert panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses up to 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice a year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public.

U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News & World Report designated Enloe Medical Center as a Best Regional Hospital for the Northern Sierras in 2020-2021 for the second year consecutively. The report, released as part of its Best Hospitals Rankings, also recognized Enloe as a high-performing hospital in these five adult procedures or conditions: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, colon cancer surgery, COPD, heart failure and knee replacement.


 These achievements reflect the consistent high-quality care our compassionate caregivers provide every day," said Mike Wiltermood, Enloe’s president and CEO.

The publication analyzed 4,554 hospitals nationwide, ranking the top 50 best hospitals and 563 best regional hospitals. Enloe was listed in the top 50 California hospitals. It was No. 37 of the 409 California hospitals evaluated.

Newsweek

Newsweek noted Enloe’s Nettleton Mother & Baby Care Center among its Best Maternity Hospitals list for 2020. Only 45 hospitals in California made the list and 231 nationwide.

Healthgrades

Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance and overall clinical quality. Healthgrades designated Enloe Medical Center with 23 achievements for 2020, including:

  • America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Gastrointestinal Care
  • America’s 100 Best Hospitals for General Surgery
  • Cranial Neurosurgery Excellence Award
  • Five-Star Recipient for Treatment of Heart Attack

“We are honored to be recognized by these organizations,” said Mike Wiltermood, Enloe’s president and CEO. “These achievements reflect the consistent high-quality care our compassionate caregivers provide every day.”
