Parma Hospital named among top community hospitals
in the country by national magazine
A national magazine has placed Parma Community General Hospital on its list of 100 Great Community Hospitals in the United States.
Becker's Hospital Review, a magazine of news and best practices in the health care industry aimed at high-level hospital leaders, analyzed information and rankings from various industry sources, including HealthGrades and Thomson Reuters. In 2012, HealthGrades, an independent quality rankings firm, named Parma Hospital the best hospital in Ohio – and among the top 5 percent in the nation – for coronary interventional procedures. Parma Hospital also ranked among the top hospitals in the state for overall cardiac services.
“We are very proud of this national recognition,” said Parma Hospital President & CEO Terrence G. Deis. “The support of our independent medical staff and the loyalty of our employees and the community we serve makes it possible for us to provide the personalized, high-quality care for which we are known.”
Becker’s considered hospitals with fewer than 550 beds that have minimal teaching programs. Only two other community hospitals in Ohio made the list. This is the second time Parma Hospital has been ranked in the Top 100 by Becker’s.
“Community hospitals are a critical component to the American healthcare continuum,” the articles states. “These hospitals are often the anchors of health and employment within their communities, providing patients with top-quality care close to home. The following hospitals have demonstrated commitments to the health of their local population through clinical excellence, community involvement and various other efforts.”
