MAYWOOD, Ill.  –  Becker’s Hospital Review has named Loyola University Medical Center to its 2015 list of 31 Great Hospitals in the Midwest.

“Each organization on this list has a strong foundation of high-quality care, stellar credentials and a focus on doing what is right for the patients in its community,” Becker’s said. “They are home to many medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care and are stalwarts of their communities, serving as research hubs or local anchors of wellness.”

To develop the list, the Becker's editorial team conducted research and examined hospital ranking sources, including U.S. News & World Report, Healthgrades, Truven Health Analytics, The Leapfrog Group and Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In examining each hospital, the editorial team considered questions such as "Would you take a loved one here for care? Would this hospital be on a short list of places to visit for an important procedure or health issue?"

The 31 Great Hospitals in the Midwest were included Becker’s earlier 2015 list of 100 Great Hospitals in America.

The Becker’s list is not a ranking; hospitals are displayed in alphabetical order. Hospitals could not pay for inclusion on the list.

Becker’s Hospital Review covers business and legal issues for hospital and health system executives.
