Newswise — Becker's Hospital Review announced today that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) earned a coveted place in its 2016 edition of its list of "100 Great Hospitals in America."
CHLA was the only freestanding children’s hospital in California named to the list, and one of just 10 hospitals named in all of California. According to the Review, the hospitals on this list are well-known for a multitude of reasons, such as having a strong history of medical innovation, providing top-notch care to patients, leading clinical advancement with forward-thinking research or holding an irreplaceable spot in their communities.
“We are honored to be part of this prominent survey identifying the health care leaders in our community here in Los Angeles and across the country,” says Paul S. Viviano, president and chief executive officer of CHLA. “This recognition is a testimony to the tremendous work by our doctors, researchers, nurses, clinical technicians and staff who work to create hope and build healthier futures for our patients and their families.”
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for this list based on rankings and awards from reputable sources, including U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and The Leapfrog Group, among other resources. The final result is a list of 100 hospitals considered overall health care leaders in their region, state or the nation.
