Howard County General Hospital has been named to the 2009 Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence List by HealthGrades.com. HCGH was one of only 270 hospitals recognized nationally putting it in the top 5% of all hospitals in the country.
According to an article in Nurse.com, “patients admitted to a hospital receiving this designation are, on average, 27% less likely to die and 8% less likely to suffer from a major complication.”
While I heartily congratulate Vic Broccolino and all the staff at HCGH, the real winners are the citizens of Howard County.
Great reads for the Summer!
