CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Chambersburg Hospital has received Healthgrades 2017 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence™.

The distinction recognizes Chambersburg Hospital as ranking in the top five percent of more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide for its clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

Chambersburg Hospital is the only hospital in the state of Pennsylvania to receive both the 2017 Healthgrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence and the 2016 Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Award.

“It is the vision of Chambersburg Hospital to exceed each community member’s highest expectations for quality health care,” said Pat O’Donnell, president and chief executive officer of Summit Health. “This designation was thanks to a team effort by our employees and staff to understand of each patient’s individual needs and concerns and then develop a plan that’s best for them.”
