Henrico Doctors’ Hospital named to top-50 list

Becker's Hospital Review magazine has selected Henrico Doctors’ Hospital as one of the “50 Best Hospitals in America” for the second year in a row.  The award is based on patient safety, clinical outcomes and reputation.

“This distinction would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the physicians, nurses and staff,” said Pat Farrell, CEO of Henrico Doctors’ Hospital. “They work hard every day to make sure that the patients are put first in everything that we do.”

Some of the other facilities on the list include Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles, CA), Cleveland Clinic (Cleveland, OH), Duke University Medical Center (Durham, NC), Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore, MD), and The Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN). According to the publication, “Becker's Hospital Review has named the 50 best hospitals in America, which cover a wide spectrum from well-known academic medical centers to less widely recognized community hospitals that have reached greatness without much fanfare .… Each of these organizations has put patients’ needs first, is driven by a variety of innovations and helped to set the bar for high-quality care.”

Of HDH, the magazine wrote: "The opening of a cardiac medical intensive care unit and a new ED in Jan. 2011 is the latest phase of its five-year, $100 million renovation. An intra-operative MRI suite opened in April 2010 and the hospital will open a new lobby, a pre-admission testing area, a laboratory and a satellite pharmacy in fall 2011. The hospital was the first in central Virginia to receive patient data via WiFi. Among many distinctions, the hospital received the outstanding achievement award from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, an award given to less than 20 percent of all cancer centers."
