December 21, 2018 — Englewood Health has again been nationally recognized as a leader in providing exceptional and safe patient care by Healthgrades and CareChex®—an information service of Quantros, Inc.—as well as by the American Cancer Society and the NJ Sharing Network. According to an analysis by Quantros, the health system is among the top 10 percent in the nation and in New Jersey for overall medical care, medical excellence, and patient safety in major clinical areas.

Ata recent award ceremony held at Englewood Hospital, representatives from Quantros and Healthgrades, another health rating agency, presented medical excellence and patient safety awards in the following clinical areas: cardiac surgery, cardiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, oncology, neurosurgery/orthopedic surgery, vascular surgery, and women’s health.

Additional awards included the Inaugural Community Partner Award presented by the American Cancer Society and the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) Gold Award presented by the NJ Sharing Network. The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) also named Englewood Hospital as One of Healthcare’s Most Wired Hospitals for the fifth consecutive year.

“Receiving national recognition for our care is truly humbling,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Health. “Each and every one of these honors is a testament to the dedication of our staff to ensure that our patients have the best possible experience and outcome.”
