2012 Becker’s Hospital Review 100 Great Community Hospitals
In 2012, Good Shepherd Medical Center was recognized as one of the “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review. The list recognizes high-performing hospitals that have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs. Good Shepherd was one of only three Texas hospitals to make the list.
To compile the “100 Great Community Hospitals” list, Becker’s editorial team analyzed information, recognition and rankings from a variety of industry sources, including iVantage Health Analytics, Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. According to Becker’s, Community hospitals are a critical component to the American healthcare continuum. These hospitals are often the anchors of health and employment within their communities, providing patients with top-quality care close to home. The following hospitals have demonstrated commitments to the health of their local population through clinical excellence, community involvement and various other efforts.
