BRUNSWICK — For the second consecutive year, Becker’s Hospital Review has named Mid Coast Hospital one of America’s 100 Great Community Hospitals (2017). Released on June 2, the 100 Great Community Hospitals list recognizes hospitals for clinical quality, operational excellence, and economic impact on the surrounding area.

“We are honored to be recognized in Becker’s Top 100 again this year,” said Lois Skillings, president and CEO of Mid Coast–Parkview Health. “This achievement is a testament to the dedication of our doctors, nurses, and all the clinical and support staff who work tirelessly every day to ensure that our patients, and the quality of care that we deliver, come first.”

The Becker’s editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from organizations such as the National Rural Health Association, iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, CareChex, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Leapfrog Group.

Earlier this year, Healthgrades recognized Mid Coast Hospital as being among the top 10 percent of hospitals in the nation. In April, the hospital received an “A” Hospital Safety Score from The Leapfrog Group, one of only 63 hospitals in the nation to have achieved straight A’s since the safety grades began in 2012.

Mid Coast shares this recognition with just one other Maine community hospital, Northern Maine Medical Center in Fort Kent.
