Christiana Care Health System has again been named among “the best of the best” by Truven Health Analytics with national recognition as one of the 100 Top Hospitals in the U.S.
It was also named an Everest Award winner for the second consecutive year. Christiana Care is again the only health system in the Delaware Valley region to earn these honors.
"Earning these honors – particularly winning the Everest for two consecutive years – truly demonstrates the commitment of our extraordinary employees, leadership and volunteers to advancing The Christiana Care Way," wrote President and CEO Dr. Janice E. Nevin in a letter to her colleagues. "This recognition confirms that we are delivering on our promise to the community we serve to be respectful, expert, caring partners in their health."
In the 100 Top Hospitals list, Christiana Care is recognized as one of 15 major teaching hospitals representing the highest national standards in hospital care and management.
Christiana Care is the only hospital in Delaware to make the list. This is the fourth 100 Top Hospitals ranking for Christiana Care.
Christiana Care also is again one of only 17 hospitals across the nation to win the 100 Top Hospitals Everest Award, given to those select few hospitals among the winners with the greatest rate of improvement over five years.
As in 2015, Truven Health Analytics again distinguishes Christiana Care as one of the highest-performing hospitals in the U.S. that has set national benchmarks for the fastest long-term improvement, according to Nevin.
Christiana Care is the only hospital in Delaware and the entire Philadelphia region to win an Everest Award.
