Yesterday, MemorialCare Health System announced it was listed as one of the “50 Great Health Systems to Know in the United States” by Becker’s Hospital Review. It was the only health system based in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, according to a release.
The release, issued Wednesday, said hospitals selected were chosen based on “clinical and general excellence, national awards and recognition, quality, safety and responses from health leaders across the country" on which healthcare systems stood out.
“MemorialCare is proud to receive this outstanding recognition on behalf of our 15,000 extraordinary employees, affiliated physicians and volunteers who contribute to this enormous achievement,” says Barry Arbuckle, Ph.D., president & CEO of MemorialCare in a statement.
