Press Releases
Washington Regional Named One of Nation's Best Regional Hospitals
02/02/2012
Washington Regional Medical Center has been named one of the nation’s Best Regional Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Washington Regional is the only hospital in Northwest Arkansas to be recognized by the publication.

From its annual Best Hospitals list, U.S. News & World Report’s editors recently singled out 247 hospitals, including Washington Regional Medical Center, for their excellence in providing care to communities that are outside major metropolitan areas. The report points out that hospitals like Washington Regional Medical Center offer a high level of medical care to communities that otherwise might have limited options, and that they are fully capable of providing first-rate care, even to most patients who have serious conditions or need demanding procedures.

In its annual Best Hospitals list published last July, U.S. News & World Report recognized Washington Regional as a High-Performing Hospital, the only Northwest Arkansas hospital to be mentioned. In the original report, Washington Regional was also named one of the nation’s Most Connected Hospitals for having been named a High-Performing Hospital while also achieving an advanced level of Electronic Medical Record adoption.

U.S. News & World Report annually evaluates nearly 5,000 hospitals in 16 different medical specialties, using factors like death rates, patient safety, procedure volume and other objective data. Physicians’ responses to a national survey, in which specialists are asked to name hospitals they consider best in their specialty for the toughest cases, also are considered.

This national recognition is just the latest for Washington Regional, which also achieved full Heart Failure Accreditation status from the Society of Chest Pain Centers, becoming the only healthcare facility in Arkansas to earn this certification. With its additional accreditation as a Chest Pain Center with PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention), Washington Regional is the first hospital in Arkansas—and only the 23rd in the United States—to achieve dual accreditation.
