Holy Redeemer Hospital Named One of 100 Great Community Hospitals


MEADOWBROOK, Pa. – June 27, 2024 Holy Redeemer Hospital was named one of the country’s “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review. Holy Redeemer Hospital is part of Redeemer Health, a community-based integrated health care and social services system in Montgomery and Bucks counties, and Northeast Philadelphia.

The annual list is developed by Becker’s based on nominations and editorial research. 

“Community hospitals are a crucial piece of the overall health care system in the U.S. They provide patients located outside of metropolitan areas with convenient, affordable care,” said Becker’s. “The community hospitals honored in this list are focused on bringing clinical and academic excellence, personalized and holistic care, and overall improved health to their communities.”

Holy Redeemer Hospital’s nomination included the hospital’s services for new mothers with substance abuse challenges, its low rates of health care-associated infections, and success in programs such as stroke care, maternity, and joint replacement. 

According to the American Hospital Association, there are 5,129 community hospitals in the United States, which is about 84% of all U.S. hospitals. The 100 Great Community Hospitals represents less than 2% of all community hospitals in the country. Further, only four hospitals in Pennsylvania earned the status as one of the 100 Great Community Hospitals this year – one in Bucks County, one in Central Pennsylvania, and two in the Philadelphia market, including Holy Redeemer Hospital.

“Truly, this is the result of a team working together and remaining committed to everything that matters most in a hospital,” said Cass Egan, Chief Administrative Officer at Holy Redeemer Hospital. “Every day we reaffirm staunch loyalty to our mission, to our culture of safety, to our patient experience, and to a community that has trusted us for generations.”

This recognition comes immediately after The Leapfrog Group scored Holy Redeemer Hospital its tenth straight A-grade for safety, noting that fewer than 6% of surveyed hospitals nationally accomplished this milestone. The Leapfrog Group informed Holy Redeemer Hospital that it has the highest number of A-grades in a row in both Montgomery County and Philadelphia County.
