Union Hospital among top 100 in its category

Union Hospital in Elkton has been named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals in the medium community hospital category for 2004, according to a statement from the hospital.

A detailed nationwide analysis of hospital data was performed by Solucient, a company that gathers health-care data.

The award recognizes Union Hospital for quality of care, operational efficiency and financial performance, the hospital said.

"This award results from the efforts of our board, management team, medical staff, volunteers and all employees, not just our caregivers," said Dr. Kenneth S. Lewis, president and chief executive of Union Hospital.

The hospital previously was recognized by Solucient in 2001, the statement said.

Other area hospitals recognized in the study include York Hospital in York, Pa., in the teaching hospital category and Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis in the large community hospital category.
