Woodwinds Health Campus a "Great Community Hospital"

5th Consecutive Year for Becker's Hospital Review Listing

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - For the fifth consecutive year, HealthEast Care System's Woodwinds Health Campus in Woodbury is among the "100 Great Community Hospitals" in the United States, according to Becker's Hospital Review.

"The role of hospitals today is changing, and we're proud that Woodwinds again has been recognized as being on the leading edge of that change," said Scott North, Senior Vice President and President of Acute Care Hospitals for HealthEast. "In addition to medical care and surgery, Woodwinds and our other hospitals play an increasingly important role in our neighborhoods. HealthEast is laser-focused on achieving optimal health and well-being for our patients and communities."

Becker's Hospital Review has published a version of this list annually since 2011. Community hospitals considered for inclusion must have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs. In selecting the top 100 community hospitals, Becker's considers other leading health care ranking sources Woodwinds has received:

  • A 100 Top Hospitals rating from Truven Health Analytics for the past four years.
  • The Healthgrades Outstanding Patient Experience Award for the past three years.
  • A 5-star award from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. 

Woodwinds Health Campus is the only hospital in the Twin Cities' southeast metro area. The modern, 86-bed facility is located on 30 acres of pristine wetlands in Woodbury.
