Surgical and Hospital Care at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Recognized as Among Top 10 Percent in Nation

December 13, 2016 – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has been nationally recognized as a leader in providing exceptional and safe patient care by Healthgrades 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 hospital care, top 10 percent in the nation and No. 1 in the state for overall surgical care, and is No. 1 in the state for excellence 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, neurosurgery/orthopedic surgery, oncology, vascular surgery, and women’s health.

These awards follow on the heels of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center’s tenth consecutive Hospital Safety Grade “A” since 2012 from the Leapfrog Group. Only three hospitals in New Jersey and 72 in the nation have achieved this record of distinction. In addition, the 2016-17 issue of US News and World Report’s Best Hospitals named Englewood Hospital and Medical Center as a “Best Regional Hospital.”

This year the hospital also received national recognition for its nursing excellence, as well as its use of technology infrastructure to support high-quality patient care and services.

“We are incredibly proud to receive national recognition for our high-quality care,” said Warren Geller, president and CEO of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. “These honors recognize all of our practitioners for their unwavering commitment to providing an extraordinary experience for each and every patient who comes through our doors.”
