Parkview Health Chief Executive Officer Mike Packnett says "being named a 100 Top Hospital is a testament to the higher standard we hold ourselves to at Parkview. As healthcare delivery continues to evolve, we plan to stay focused on delivering excellent care to every person every day, both to improve patient outcomes and the overall health of our communities. It’s humbling to be among the other top hospitals in our nation that share the same values, compassion and commitment to service excellence that we practice here at Parkview."
Dupont Hospital CEO Aaron Garofola says "since we opened in 2001, our team members and medical staff have consistently delivered the highest levels of patient experience and quality care. Doing this year after year while maintaining the personal touch of a community hospital is a prime example of what we have always believed to be ‘The Dupont Difference.’"
Truven Health says its 100 Top Hospitals ranking, which is in its ninth year, is "the most comprehensive, academically driven study of its kind."
