Owensboro Medical Health System ranked in the top 5 percent nationally for 2009 and received the "HealthGrades Distinguished Hospital For Clinical Excellence Award"(TM)(according to WFIE the Internet, and the OMHS website)
OMHS is rated in the top 270 hospitals in the country and is one of only five in the commonwealth to obtain this honorable award!
Apparently this group studies the mortality rates and clinical care of almost 5,000 non-federal hospitals. According to OMHS's CEO Jeff Barber, this is an award that is hard to achieve.
In my humble opinion, Owensboro, Kentucky is very fortunate to have OMHS. Most area health systems do not ever achieve this recognition for high quality care! I can tell you that from my previous Nursing experience and from living in other areas of the country! Thanks Owensboro Medical Health System! I am so glad I live here!
