Minden Medical Center has been named a 100 Great Community Hospital by Becker's Hospital Review.
"Community hospitals are a critical component to the American healthcare continuum anchoring health and employment within their communities, providing patients with top-quality care close to home," Becker's officals said.
"Hospitals included on the list demonstrate commitments to the health of their local population through clinical excellence, community involvement and various other efforts, according to the publication."
The list recognizes top performing hospitals with fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs. To compile this list, the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team analyzed information, recognition and rankings from a variety of industry sources, including iVantage Health Analytics, Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
