Becker’s Hospital Review has selected USC Arcadia Hospital for its
2023 list of 153 “Great community hospitals” from across the country.
The prestigious selections were based on several outside rankings and ratings
organizations, including U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, The Leapfrog Group and The
Chartis Center for Rural Health. Becker’s Hospital Review is the
leading hospital magazine for hospital business news and analysis for
hospital and healthcare system executives nationwide.
“Community hospitals are vital pieces of the overall healthcare system,
expanding care access to patients who might otherwise need to travel great
distances or face other barriers to care,” the publication’s
announcement stated. “These community hospitals are lauded for their
clinical excellence, compassionate care and economic impact on their communities.”
