Nice. Personally experienced great care at the hospital. It's nice to have a hospital close to home receive such distinction. Please read:*******health.usnews****/health-news/blogs/second-opinion/2014/01/11/us-news-hospital-rankings-to-boost-role-of-patient-safety-cut-back-reputation

Good job winning an award no one has ever heard of. If you go to their website, they are a vendor who sells software. Friends of mine that have been in healthcare for 30 and 40 years, have never heard of them. It is a sad day when you hold a press conference to tout an award from someone that no one knows anything about. Congrats. Must be having a poor profit year.

Hospitals are eager to jump on the ACA Federal faucet but how much of the endless advertising that hospitals do end up in patient care costs? They certainly have to be a large part of operating costs. Making an announcement like this is free advertising because the local media will obediently attend and report it, but we are going to see another thousand paid commercials telling us the same thing I am sure. How much does that and the $100 tylenol pill impact patient cos
