Becker’s Healthcare has released the 2018 edition of its 100 Great Community Hospitals list. This list includes independent community hospitals as well as facilities affiliated with large health systems. Some hospitals serve expansive rural geographies, while others care for small communities outside of large cities. Many of the hospitals have been recognized for their clinical quality, operational excellence and economic impact on the surrounding areas. For the purposes of this list, Becker’s defines a community hospital as a facility with no more than 550 beds. Hospitals were selected for inclusion based on several outside rankings and ratings organizations.
