CHEYENNE – Cheyenne Regional Medical Center officials announced that CRMC received the Healthgrades 2020 America’s 250 Best Hospitals award.
According to a news release, the distinction places CRMC in the top 5% of more than 4,500 hospitals assessed nationwide for its superior clinical performance as measured by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for helping consumers make informed choices about hospitals and physicians.
This is the second year in a row for CRMC to receive the top 250 hospital distinction. CRMC is the only hospital in Wyoming to receive this award for 2020.
“This past month has been an incredible one with (Tuesday’s) top 250 hospital announcement, and also the news that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gave our hospital a top five-star quality rating in January,” CRMC President and Chief Executive Officer Timothy Thornell said in the release. “Taken together, these two prestigious recognitions are a validation of the exceptional care provided at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, which is at the core of our mission of inspiring great health. On behalf of our leaders and trustees, I want to thank our workforce and providers for the outstanding care and service they provide to our community and region and congratulate them on these wonderful quality achievements.”
