Lakeland Regional Medical Center, St. Joseph and Lakeland Community Hospital, Niles were recently recognized as Community Value Index Top 100 hospitals and Community Value Five Star hospitals by Cleverley + Associates.
The federal government recognizes the two hospitals as a single entity; thus, the rating applies to both hospitals. Cleverley + Associates, a health care financial consulting firm, released the findings as part of its publication “State of the Hospital Industry – 2011 Edition.”
“For more than a decade, Lakeland has adhered to a board-directed commitment to providing exemplary value to our community,” said Loren Hamel, president and CEO, Lakeland HealthCare. “That value is defined as great service, great clinical outcomes, and competitive costs. This award is recognition that our long-term strategy is paying dividends for our community.”
