As a valued member of our extended Mission Hospital family, I am pleased to share some exciting news. Over the past few weeks, despite the immense challenges associated with COVID-19, Mission Hospital has earned a multitude of distinctions.
In July, Modern Healthcare selected Mission Hospital as one of the top 150 Best Places to Work in Health Care. Only 150 health care organizations across the country were honored with this distinction, and Mission is one of only two hospitals to be recognized in Orange County. The other hospital is St. Jude Regional Medical Center in Fullerton, also a member of Providence St. Joseph Health.
Last week, for the third consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report recognized Mission for outstanding patient care. In the 2020-21 Best Hospital Rankings, U.S. News & World Report named Mission the No.1 hospital in South Orange County and No.15 in the state of California. Mission is one of the few community hospitals to receive statewide recognition and we are thrilled that the depth and range of our outstanding care has been publicly celebrated.
And, just a few days ago, Mission Hospital received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, and also qualified for the following recognitions:
One of the reasons these recognitions are so meaningful is that they validate our ongoing commitment to high quality care, patient safety and experience, as well as physician and caregiver engagement. We know that when our physicians and caregivers are engaged and happy with the work they do, our patients feel it. When they feel disengaged and unsatisfied, our patients feel that too. We are proud of our unwavering focus to ensure our patients have exceptional experiences at Mission Hospital.
We couldn’t have achieved these honors without the support of community leaders like you. We sincerely thank you for your ongoing partnership and collaboration.
