December 20, 2019 — As 2019 comes to a close, Englewood Health has once again been nationally recognized as a leader in providing exceptional and safe patient care by The Leapfrog Group, Healthgrades, and Quantros, Inc. as well as by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives.

At this year’s Celebration of Excellence award ceremony, held at Englewood Hospital, representatives from Quantros and Healthgrades, two respected health rating agencies, presented medical excellence and patient safety awards in the following clinical areas: gastroenterology, general surgery, heart and vascular, neurology and neurosurgery, oncology, orthopedic surgery, pulmonology, and women’s health.

Recognizing achievement in information technology, the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) also named Englewood Hospital and Englewood Health Physician Network as Level 8/10 among HealthCare’s Most Wired hospitals and ambulatory care networks. According to CHIME, organizations designated as level 8 have deployed technologies and strategies to help them analyze their data and are starting to achieve meaningful clinical and efficiency outcomes.

“Receiving national recognition for our care is a truly remarkable honor for the entire Englewood Health community,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Health. “These awards are a reflection of the outstanding efforts and unwavering commitment of our staff to providing exceptional care for our patients.”
