WITH MISSION HEALTH PERFORMING IN THE TOP 15 OF ALL HOSPITALS FOR 5 YEARS, WHAT BETTER? IT SEEMS WE HAVE A MUCH FARTHER WAY TO FALL THAN TO RISE.

WITH MISSION HEALTH PERFORMING IN THE TOP 15 OF ALL HOSPITALS FOR 5 YEARS, WHAT BETTER? IT SEEMS WE HAVE A MUCH FARTHER WAY TO FALL THAN TO RISE.

As you know, being named a nationwide Top 15 Health System in six of the past seven years is an extraordinary feat which represents the incredible dedication, skill, compassion and commitment to excellence of the entire Mission Health team.  But no organization can rest on its laurels; rather, it must continue to evolve, change and adapt to rapidly changing market conditions.  Mission’s goal in potentially joining HCA Healthcare is to become an even stronger organization going forward than we would be alone.

Mission Health and HCA Healthcare make a good match given our rankings and the fact that 106 of HCA Healthcare’s hospitals are on The Joint Commission’s list of Top Performers on Key Quality and 10 of their hospitals rank among the eight percent of hospitals nationwide that are Magnet designated for providing the highest quality of patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.  Although we are in process, Mission Health does not yet have a hospital that has achieved this designation.

HCA Healthcare brings significant capabilities in clinical trials, research, predictive modeling and analytics and more that augment the excellent capabilities that Mission Health has now.  We expect that patients, team members and our community will all benefit from the planned transaction.
