Saint Mary’s is the only hospital in Nevada to receive the award

Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center, a member of Prime Healthcare, was named to the 100 Great Community Hospitals list by Becker’s Hospital Review. Saint Mary’s, who was also recognized on the list’s 2023 iteration, became the only hospital in Nevada to make this year’s edition.

“Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center is honored to receive a recognition that directly reflects both our commitment to the community and our incredible staff’s compassion and clinical excellence,” said Derrick Glum, CEO of Saint Mary’s Health Network. “To be highlighted by Becker’s in this manner along with some of the leading hospitals in the United States is a significant reinforcer of the amazing care our teams provide on a daily basis. Saint Mary’s is proud to serve this community, and greatly appreciative of this honor.”

Per Becker’s, the community hospitals featured on the complete list are focused on bringing clinical and academic excellence, personalized and holistic care, and overall improved health to their communities. The Becker’s editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on nominations and considered several outside rankings and ratings organizations, including U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, CMS, The Leapfrog Group, the National Rural Health Association and The Chartis Center for Rural Health.

In total, Saint Mary’s was joined by seven other Prime Healthcare hospitals who received recognition, including:
▪ Centinela Hospital Medical Center (CA)
▪ East Liverpool City Hospital (Ohio)
▪ Encino Hospital Medical Center (CA)
▪ Mission Regional Medical Center (TX)
▪ Sherman Oaks Hospital (CA)
▪ St. Joseph Medical Center (MO)
▪ St. Mary’s Medical Center (MO)

Saint Mary’s was also named Nevada’s Best-In-State Hospital by Newsweek for 2024, and recently received the prestigious 2024 Patient Safety Excellence Award from Healthgrades.
