A Legacy of Excellence
Lankenau Medical Center, we have a 152-year history of maintaining a
hospital-wide culture of excellence. But as our patients, physicians and
staff know, we steadfastly refuse to rest on our laurels when it comes
to patient care, outstanding outcomes and operational efficiency.
It is these qualities that have led Lankenau Medical Center to be named
one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics.*
Lankenau was one of nearly 3,000 hospitals nationwide to be evaluated
for this honor and is one of only two hospitals in Pennsylvania to have
earned this distinction in 2013.
This award reflects our achievements in bringing higher value to the
community—better quality and greater patient satisfaction—while
confronting the challenges of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
We congratulate the physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers at Lankenau
Medical Center for their persistence in driving higher performance
against national benchmarks during this era of healthcare reform.
