Lake Charles Memorial Hospital Named on the Great Community Hospitals List by Becker’s

Becker's Hospital Review names Lake Charles Memorial Hospital in the 2023 edition of its “Great community hospitals” list.

These hospitals names are known for clinical excellence, compassionate care, economic impact on their communities and more. Many of these hospitals have been honored by top ranking and award agencies for their stellar patient outcomes and their performance in specialty care services. The hospitals named on this list are leaders who show above-and-beyond commitment to their communities. Their expertise helps expand care access to patients who would otherwise face barriers such as cost or distance.

This list celebrates these hospitals' dedication to optimizing healthcare.

"As southwest Louisiana's largest community health system, it's an honor to be named among other prestigious healthcare organizations from around the country. This award is a direct reflection of the elevated level of care and compassion that our healthcare team offers everyday," says Devon Hyde, President and CEO.

The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on analysis of ranking and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report's 2022-23 rankings, Healthgrades, CMS star ratings, The Leapfrog Group safety grades and The Chartis Center for Rural Health. Becker's also accepted nominations for this list.

The full list features individual profiles of all hospitals on the list.

Note: This list is not an endorsement of included hospitals, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list. Hospital names are presented in alphabetical order.

According to American Hospital Association there are currently 5,157 community hospitals across the country. This places Lake Charles Memorial in the top 3% in the United States.
