UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital has again been named among the 100 Great Hospitals in America by Becker’s Hospital Review, a recognition of our excellence in clinical care, patient outcomes, and staff and physician satisfaction.

Becker’s Hospital Review is monthly publication offering business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Hospitals included on this list are industry leaders that have achieved advanced accreditation and certification in several specialties, and many have sparked trends in healthcare technology, hospital management and patient satisfaction.

“We are excited to continue to be recognized among the nation’s best hospitals year over year,” UK Vice President for Health Affairs Dr. Mark Newman said. “Every day we focus on advancing the care of our patients, and it’s nice to see others are recognizing that continued progress.”

The 100 Great Hospitals in America list is formulated based on analysis of several ranking and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report’s 2017-18 rankings, CMS star ratings, Leapfrog grades and Truven Health Analytics.
