EvergreenHealth this week announced it was the recipient of a 2017 America’s 100 Best Hospitals award from Healthgrades, an online resource for information about physicians, hospitals, and health care providers.

The award honors only the top 2 percent of more than 4,500 U.S. hospitals considered, ranked on clinical outcomes of many conditions and procedures during the 2017 study period (2013-2015). The hospitals that make the cut demonstrate superior performance levels across a broad spectrum of types of care, including a 27.1 percent lower risk of dying across 19 rated conditions, Healthgrades reported.

This recognition comes as the hospital celebrates its 45th year of serving the Eastside community.
