On Monday, EvergreenHealth was named one of the nation’s 100 Great Community Hospitals by Becker’s Hospital Review. It was the only Washington hospital to make the list. The placement was based on EvergreenHealth’s service achievements, rankings, awards, safety procedures, and care in the last year.
Heath care centers had to have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs to be considered a “community hospital” by Becker’s. EvergreenHealth has an integrated two-hospital healthcare system that serves about 850,000 residents in north King and south Snohomish counties. Its main campus is located in Kirkland.
“We hold ourselves to the highest standards for quality care, safety, service and value, and we are proud to be named among other industry leaders for setting the bar in these critical areas,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte in a statement. “This recognition is a true reflection of the dedication of our providers, nurses, staff, and volunteers who share a purpose to enrich the health and well-being of every life we touch.”
