Mother Frances Hospital has been included in Becker's Hospital Review’s recently published the 2014 edition of "100 Great Community Hospitals," a list based on hospitals' accolades, quality of care and services provided to their patient populations.
“We are incredibly pleased to again be included in this prestigious list of hospitals who are distinguished nationally for their quality of care, service and skill,” said John McGreevy, Chief Executive Officer, Mother Frances Hospital Tyler. “This recognition is a strong example of the tireless effort and energy given by each member of the Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics team to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality healthcare available.”
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, CareChex and American Hospital Association. iVantage recognitions considered include Healthstrong Hospitals, which are organizations in the top tier of iVantage's Hospital Strength Index rankings, and the Top 100 Critical Access Hospital list, which indicates the critical access hospital performs as well or better at the median overall than all U.S. general acute-care hospitals in clinical and operational performance and financial outcomes. Inclusion on Truven Health Analytics' 100 Top Hospitals list was also factored in.
“Without the previous achievements of the medical staff, physicians and all our employees, this honor would not be possible,” said Ray Thompson, FACHE, Chief Operating Officer for Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics. “Thanks to astonishing efforts that have resulted in numerous awards and distinctions over the last weeks, months and years, the TMFHC team is proud to be named among the 100 Great Community Hospitals – not only because it means that we are working in the right directions to constantly improve, but because it means that we are able to offer the very best care to our patients.”
Mother Frances Hospital is one of only six hospitals in Texas to be named to the to Becker’s Hospital Review 100 Great Community Hospitals, and is the only medical facility in East Texas named to the list.
