Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills was named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s Top 100 Community Hospitals list — the only Los Angeles County hospital to be so chosen by the industry publication.

Providence Holy Cross, which recently expanded to 377 beds, was noted for its full continuum of health care, from inpatient and outpatient services to home healthcare, health education and community outreach programs.

“This is a great recognition for our physicians, our nurses, staff and our volunteers,” hospital CEO Larry Bowe said in a prepared statement. “We work as a team and we take pride in serving our community with our special brand of excellence and compassion.”

In 2012, HealthGrades awarded the hospital excellence awards in women’s services, pulmonary care and stroke care. Providence Holy Cross has also earned Magnet Nurse accreditation for excellence in nursing services. Providence Holy Cross is noted for its Level II trauma center, one of just two in the San Fernando Valley, and for its cardiology and women’s services in particular.

Becker’s editorial team analyzed information, recognition and rankings from a variety of industry sources, including iVantage Health Analytics, Thomson Reuters, HealthGrades and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Hospitals named to the list have fewer than 550 patient beds and minimal teaching programs.

Providence Holy Cross expanded last year with the opening of its four-story South Wing. The new wing included a new neonatal intensive care unit for infants in need of special care. The hospital also hired approximately 250 new employees.
