“It’s a tremendous achievement to have two of our hospitals receive such elite recognition so consistently,” said Dr. Rick Scott, executive vice president and chief clinical officer for AMITA Health. “And the fact that it’s continued throughout the pandemic speaks to the incredible work and dedication of our physicians, nurses and associates. This is just a reflection of what patients and communities can expect from all our hospitals and sites of care.”
