Schneck Named One Of Nation's Great Hospitals

Last updated on Friday, May 4, 2012

(SEYMOUR) - Schneck has been named one of the nation’s 100 Great Hospitals by Becker’s Hospital Review.

"The hospitals on the list demonstrated greatness through clinical accolades, innovation in care delivery, recent capital developments and the offering of new services, specialty programs or technology," Furlow said Tuesday.

The review said that "Schneck Medical Center is a 100-bed, government- owned hospital in a small Indiana town, but it has proven its quality healthcare delivery over the past several years."

It pointed out the hospital is one of four 2011 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award recipients and that the Magnet-designated hospital received the HealthGrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award for three straight years.

An example of that innovation was launched last year, when Schneck introduced the da Vinci Si robotics surgery pro¬gram. The hospital also serves as a training site the da Vinci program.
