Sourced from Dubois County Free Press

Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center has been named as one of the 100 Great Community Hospitals for 2016 by Becker’s Hospital Review.

The selection team from Becker’s selected hospitals based on rankings and awards from organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, CareChex, the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and the Leapfrog Group. Hospitals that made the top 100 list have earned recognition from one or more of these organizations.

Memorial Hospital has been serving community residents for more than six decades. The 143-bed hospital employs more than 1,600 people and clinicians care for 7,000 inpatients, 230,000 outpatients and the nearly 1,000 babies born there each year.

Healthgrades recognized Memorial Hospital with its Outstanding Patient Experience Award for three consecutive years — 2014, 2015 and 2016. This year, iVantage named Memorial Hospital to its Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals list.
