Rome, GA; December 4, 2012 — Redmond was named by Georgia Trend Magazine as the “Top Medium-Sized Hospital” in Georgia. The magazine published its 2012 list of Georgia’s Top Hospitals in the December issue. According to Georgia Trend Magazine, the rankings were compiled based upon publicly available information through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and included “quality of care, patient satisfaction, mortality and readmission statistics and data on hospital-acquired infections and conditions.”

“The Redmond team of doctors, nurses, technicians and support staff are truly exceptional” said John Quinlivan, Redmond Chief Executive Officer. “Our recognition as Georgia’s best medium-sized hospital is a reflection of our staff’s dedication to their patients and commitment to their professions. I can’t tell you how proud I am to be associated with them.”

In addition to medium-sized hospitals (151-399 beds), the magazine also ranked Teaching Hospitals, Large Hospitals (more than 400 beds), Small Hospitals (fewer than 150 beds) and Critical Access Hospitals (rural community hospitals). Said Quinlivan, “Redmond’s top ranking is the result of a comprehensive analysis by Georgia Trend Magazine of hospital quality and service data. Our patients increasingly use this information when they select Redmond as their hospital of choice. And it likely plays a strong factor in the growth we’ve seen of patients from outside our area who come to Redmond for their healthcare.”

This fall, Redmond was also named one of the nation’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America, for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
