For the second year in a row, Paoli Hospital, part of Main Line Health, has been named one of the nation’s “100 Best Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review, a list based on the hospital's quality of care and service to the community.
“Providing superior care to our patients and the community is our mission, and this designation is a reflection of that care,” said Jim Paradis, President, Paoli Hospital. “I would like to congratulate and thank the entire staff of Paoli Hospital for the dedication and expertise that they provide to our patients each day.”
To conduct the 100 Best Community Hospitals study, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected community hospitals based on rankings and awards from iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters), Healthgrades and The Joint Commission. Nominations for the list were also considered.
Becker's Hospital Review features up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Content is geared toward high-level hospital leaders, and it works to provide valuable content, including hospital and health system news, best practices and legal guidance specifically for hospital decision-makers. Each of the 12 annual issues of Becker's Hospital Review reaches approximately 18,500 people, primarily acute-care hospital CEOs and CFOs.
Paoli Hospital, a member of Main Line Health, is a 231-bed, not-for-profit acute care hospital and Level II Regional Trauma Center with outpatient facilities in Exton and Collegeville. In 2012, Paoli Hospital was named for the fourth time among the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics. It was one of only 20 medium-sized community hospitals nationwide and the only hospital in Pennsylvania to make the list in this category. Paoli was named among US News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for the Philadelphia metro area for excellence in four specialties including gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, orthopedics, and urology and is a multi-year recipient of the Premier “Award for Quality” for providing outstanding patient care and maintaining operational efficiency.
