Mercy Clermont receives honors in national review

Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital made the list of 100 Great Community Hospitals in a new independent study from Becker’s Hospital Review that was released in June.

Becker’s Hospital Review is a national publication that provides news and analysis of hospitals and health care systems.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment that reflects so many of our priorities in terms of delivering exceptional care, providing a great place to work and practice medicine and being engaged in our community,” Jeff Graham, market leader and president for the Mercy Health East market, said in a release from the hospital.

To compile the list of 100 Great Community Hospitals, Becker’s Hospital Review’s editorial team analyzed information, recognition and rankings from industry sources that included iVantage Health Analytics, Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The study focused on high-performing hospitals with fewer than 550 patient beds and have minimal teaching programs.

Hospitals that made the list were hospitals that demonstrated commitments to the health of their local population through clinical excellence, community involvement and various other efforts.

The review from the editorial team also described Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital as having one of the region’s newest and largest intensive care units and one of the region’s first dedicated wound care centers.

Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital was the only hospital in southwest Ohio to make the list.

Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital also made the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals list earlier this year and the hospital’s pulmonary services earned the 2012 Pulmonary Car Excellence Award from HealthGrades as well.

“Our consistent national recognition really speaks to the commitment we have to our patients from everyone on our team – our employees, physicians and volunteers,” Gayle Heintzelman, site administrator for Mercy Health-Clermont Hospital, said in a release from the hospital.
