MUNSTER | The hospitals in the Community Healthcare System were recognized among America's 100 best in multiple specialties, by a company that ranks hospitals nationwide.

Community Hospital in Munster, St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago and St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart each earned distinctions in specific areas of clinical excellence ranging from cardiac care and cardiac surgery to stroke care, gastrointestinal (GI) care and orthopedic surgery, according to a news release.

“Our goal is to always integrate clinical quality care and service excellence throughout our entire healthcare system,” said John Gorski, chief operating officer of Community Healthcare System. “The fact that all three of our hospitals have earned clinical distinctions as being among America’s 100 best in separate specialties ensures patients at any one of them are receiving some of the best care in the country as evidenced by these Healthgrades rankings.”

Healthgrades evaluated almost 4,500 hospitals for 31 common inpatient procedures and conditions, and identified the 100 best hospitals within each procedure.
