Augusta Health named one of top community hospitals


Becker’s Hospital Review has published its list of 65 Great Community Hospitals, recognized as high-performing leaders in patient care, clinical quality and community outreach. Augusta Health in Fishersville, Virginia is one of the hospitals selected.

To compile the list, the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team analyzed and reviewed data from sources including the US News & World Report, HealthGrades, American Nurses Credentialing Center and Thomson Reuters to identify remarkable hospitals. For inclusion on this list, hospitals needed to have fewer than 550 patient beds and minimal teaching programs.

Becker’s Hospital Review is a bimonthly publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Its content is geared toward high level hospital leaders and includes hospital and health system news, best practices and legal guidance.
