– Methodist Hospital of Southern California in Arcadia recently received two tremendous honors from Medicare and from The SafeCare Group for outstanding patient safety and overall hospital quality.
In December, Methodist Hospital was one of only six hospitals in California–and the only hospital in Los Angeles County–to be recognized by Medicare with five stars, Medicare’s highest award for overall hospital quality. In January, Methodist Hospital was named for the third consecutive year by The SafeCare Group as one of the top 100 hospitals in the country for patient safety.
“We are honored to receive these prestigious rankings,” said Dan Ausman, Methodist Hospital President and CEO. “We sincerely appreciate the efforts of our doctors, nurses, and staff for helping Methodist Hospital earn this well-deserved recognition for providing excellent patient care.”
