MUNSTER | Community Hospital ranked in the top 5 percent in the nation in women's health care, according to Healthgrades, which provides physician information and hospital quality ratings.

This is the fifth-consecutive time Community Hospital has been ranked as a top-performing facility for quality female patient outcomes.

The findings are based on an analysis of more than 5 million Medicare patient records, from 2008 to 2011, and review of 16 procedures and diagnoses on women’s medicine, cardiovascular and bone and joint health treatments.

“It takes a dedicated team of physicians, specialists, clinical staff and nurses to continue to deliver the highest quality care to residents, particularly the women, of our community day in and day out,” said Don Fesko, CEO of Community Hospital. “Healthgrades’ award for excellence in women’s care serves as an acknowledgment of the teamwork and commitment that goes into providing the very best care to every patient, every visit.”

Earlier this year, Healthgrades named Community Hospital in Munster as an America’s 50 Best Hospital for a sixth consecutive year, placing it in the top 1 percent of all hospitals in the nation for quality outcomes.
