HealthGrades ranks Evergreen Hospital among the nation's Top 5% of hospitals, according to its independent study of risk-adjusted mortality and in-hospital complication rates. Nearly 5,000 hospitals were included in the study.
"This award belongs to the employees, physicians and volunteers of Evergreen who have consistently demonstrated through their care and service their commitment to be the best,” says Evergreen CEO Bob Malte. “They have received this recognition not by focusing on awards, but by actively working toward our common mission of providing breakthrough care to the community we serve through the daily exercise of our values of compassion, respect, collaboration, accountability and a drive for excellence."
Evergreen has also earned 2012 Stroke Care Excellence Award, the 2012 Pulmonary Care Excellence Award and the 2010/2011 Maternity Care Excellence Award, which recognized those services’ ranking among the Top 5% of hospitals in the nation.
