Logan Regional Hospital’s recent recognition from Becker’s Hospital Review is unique because it results from an analysis of several national awards.
LRH Administrator Kyle Hansen said the hospital was included on Becker’s list of 100 Great Community Hospitals in 2017.
“Becker’s looks at a number of criteria,” said Hansen, “but it is heavily weighted on some of the systems and awards that are given out by other organizations.
“Those are focused heavily on patients’ safety, health grades and a number of other groups that are out there that assess the performance of hospitals nationally.”
Hansen said such recognition starts with the commitment of those working at the hospital.
“It’s our physicians, our caregivers and our staff. There is a genuine sense of community here; people who work here know they are caring for their family and neighbors and loved ones. Many go the extra mile and we have examples of that just about every day.
“We have also put in place some structural components to insure we identify and have a standard approach to care that we deliver.
