Gordon Hospital has been ranked the top small hospital in the state by Georgia Trend magazine.
The annual rankings were released this week in the December 2013 edition of the state-wide business magazine.
Gordon Hospital is pleased to be recognized by Georgia Trend as its top small hospital,” says Pete Weber, president and CEO of Gordon Hospital. “Our physicians and our staff do an excellent job of caring for our patients in all aspects of their care. Everyone on our team works tirelessly to ensure that patients receive a top-notch healthcare experience each time they use our hospital.”
Georgia Trend’s 2013 hospital rankings divide 138 of the state’s hospitals into five separate categories: Teaching Hospitals, Large Hospitals (more than 400 beds), Medium-sized Hospitals (151-399 beds), Small Hospitals (fewer than 150 beds) and Critical Access Hospitals (rural community hospitals).
To determine the rankings, magazine officials chose to group hospitals of similar size and mission together and compare them with their peer institutions. All information used to compile the rankings relies on publicly available information on quality of care, patient satisfaction, mortality and readmission statistics and data on hospital-acquired infections and conditions.
