Celebrating Excellence in Quality and Patient Safety

Celebration of Excellence 2017

Englewood, NJ (December 8, 2017) — Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has once again been nationally recognized as a leader in providing exceptional and safe patient care by Healthgrades, The Leapfrog Group and Carechex®–an information service of Quantros, Inc. According to an analysis by Quantros, the medical center is among the top 10 percent in the nation and in New Jersey for overall medical care, and is No. 1 in the state for excellence and patient safety in major clinical areas.

At a recent award ceremony held at the medical center, 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, urologic surgery, neurosurgery/orthopedic surgery, pulmonology, vascular surgery, and women’s health.

These awards follow on the heels of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center’s twelfth consecutive Hospital Safety Grade “A” since 2012 from The Leapfrog Group. Only three hospitals in New Jersey and 59 in the nation have achieved this record of distinction. In addition, the 2017-18 issue of US News and World Report’s Best Hospitals named Englewood Hospital and Medical Center as a “Best Regional Hospital.”

“Receiving national recognition for our care is truly humbling,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. “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.”
