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.
