Owensboro Health Regional Hospital has been recognized on the 2015 list of 100 Great Community Hospitals by Becker’s Hospital Review, a prestigious health care journal.
Owensboro Health Regional Hospital is the only facility in Kentucky to be named on the list, which is comprised of facilities with fewer than 550 beds and which have minimal teaching programs, according to a Becker’s Hospital Review news release. The list has been compiled every year since 2011, and Owensboro Health Regional Hospital has made the list for the past four straight years. Selection for the list is done by the editorial team at Becker’s, which uses rankings and awards from across the health care industry to make their picks.
“The inclusion of Owensboro Health Regional Hospital on the list is a testament to the quality of work being done there,” Owensboro Health President and CEO Philip Patterson said.
Owensboro Health has earned recognition from Becker’s Hospital Review multiple times in the past on a variety of topics. In 2014, Owensboro Health Regional Hospital was also recognized as having the lowest 30-day pneumonia readmission rate in the country, and the hospital also made that list again in 2015.
