Mercy Medical Center has been named one of the “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review based on the hospital’s quality of care and service to the community. Mercy is the only Long Island area hospital and one of two New York State hospitals recognized.
“As Mercy celebrates its 100th anniversary, this is yet another fitting tribute to the wonderful care and services we provide to the patients in our surrounding communities,” said Mercy’s executive vice-president and chief administrative officer, Aaron E. Glatt, MD. “This latest recognition coming in addition to US News & World Report ranking Mercy among the top New York hospitals underscores the high quality provided at Mercy and our superior patient care.”
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected community hospitals based on rankings and awards from iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters), Healthgrades, and The Joint Commission. Nominations for the list were also considered.
