Adirondack Health once again named to “100 Great Community Hospitals” list
SARANAC LAKE – For the second year in a row, Adirondack Health is proud to announce Adirondack Medical Center (AMC) has been named among the nation’s “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review for 2015.
The hospitals on the list have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs. Some are located in suburban areas, but many are found in rural areas and serve as the only hospitals in their communities. Whether independent or part of a larger health system, the “great community hospitals” continually work to provide high quality care and an outstanding patient experience. AMC is a member Adirondack Health, the only full-service health system in the Adirondack Park. Only two other hospitals in New York State were named to the list of “100 Great Community Hospitals.”
“Every day, we strive to provide exceptional care to those who live in and visit the Adirondack Region of Northern New York,” said Chandler Ralph, President and CEO of Adirondack Health. “As a result of direct input from our patients and long-term care residents, we are able to continually enhance and provide consistent, high-quality care.”
The criteria for selecting the community hospitals is based on rankings and awards from iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades and CareChex.
Adirondack Health is only one of 18 health systems to receive 4 out of 5 stars on the new CMS patient experience of care rating, and was recently named to the list of Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the U.S. by Soliant Health.
In addition to AMC in Saranac Lake and Lake Placid, Adirondack Health offers primary care services in Keene, Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake; a broad range of specialty care services, physical rehabilitation and therapy services, dental care and long term care at Living Centers in Lake Placid and Tupper Lake.
