(Woodbury, MN - June 15, 2011) - Becker's Hospital Review has named Woodwinds Health Campus one of country's 65 Great Community Hospitals. Woodwinds was recognized as high-performing leader in patient care, clinical quality and community outreach. Woodwinds was the only Minnesota community hospital to make the list.
"From the very beginning, Woodwinds was built with ideas and dreams that came from the community," said Tom Schmitt, VP/CEO of Woodwinds. "That partnership, together with our unique employee culture and holistic patient care model, has set up apart and has helped us realize our vision of fundamentally creating the health care experience in a way that hasn’t been done before."
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team compiled the list after analyzing and reviewing data from sources including U.S. News & World Report, HealthGrades, American Nurses Credentialing Center and Thomson Reuters to identify remarkable hospitals.
For inclusion on this list, hospitals needed to have fewer than 550 patient beds and minimal teaching programs. Woodwinds is an 86-bed community hospital and the only hospital in the city of Woodbury, Minnesota. View a complete list of the 65 hospitals.
Earlier this year, Woodwinds was also named one of the Top Metro Hospitals in the Twin Cities by U.S. News & World Report.
