Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis listed among Becker’s ‘100 Great Community Hospitals’

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis has been recognized and included in the 2016 edition of Becker’s Hospital Review "100 Great Community Hospitals.”

The publication’s editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on rankings and awards from organizations including iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, CareChex, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Leapfrog Group.

In March 2016, Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis was named by Truven as being among the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals. And over the years, both the Indianapolis and Mooresville hospitals have earned numerous accolades from Healthgrades, including 2016.

“Our physicians, providers and staff dedicate themselves daily to create a healing environment, and accomplish that care in a team-based manner for our patients and their families,” said James Callaghan, MD, president and CEO for Franciscan St. Francis Health. “We are proud to receive this recognition as it reflects on our staff’s dedication to our healthcare ministry.”

Franciscan St. Francis Health also made the Becker’s listing in 2012. The publication defines a "community hospital" as one with fewer than 550 beds that have minimal teaching programs. The hospital’s nationally recognized Family Medicine Residency Program has been the training ground for hundreds of new physicians entering the field of primary care.

“The hospitals on this list are spread across the country, some not far from major metro areas and some in rural communities,” Becker’s officials noted when making their announcement on June 20. “Regardless of location or whether they are affiliated with a major system, these hospitals are vital parts of their respective communities.”

Becker’s Hospital Review notes that the 100 Great Community Hospitals list is not an endorsement of included hospitals, health systems or associated health care providers and those organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list.
