Providence in Humboldt County announced recently that St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka and Redwood Memorial Hospital have been recognized for high-quality distinctions from Healthgrades – an organization that recognizes top hospitals with outstanding clinical outcomes in key specialties.
St. Joseph Hospital received five awards in cardiac and critical care areas. Among the distinctions was a recognition as one of Healthgrades 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention in America. Redwood Memorial Hospital received Five-Star distinction for Treatment for Sepsis.
“This recognition from Healthgrades is a reflection of our care providers commitment to ensuring our friends, family and neighbors in Humboldt County receive the best care possible,” said Roberta Luskin-Hawk, MD, chief executive for Providence in Humboldt County. “In addition to delivering exceptional care, their compassion for their patients truly embodies our Mission, and I could not be prouder of the work they do.”
