Morgan Medical Center is in top 13% of more than 4,600 U.S. hospitals offering emergency care

Morgan Medical Center — Morgan County’s acclaimed state-of-the-art community hospital and Level IV Trauma Center — has been named one of the Best Hospitals for Emergency Timeliness by the Women’s Choice Award®. The award signifies that Morgan Medical Center is in the top 13% of 4,642 U.S. hospitals offering emergency care services.

“This award is significant as long waits can have a negative impact on patient outcomes,” says Ralph A. Castillo, CPA, CEO of Morgan Medical Center. “When a patient has to wait for a long period of time they often leave without receiving medical treatment, and this is rarely good for the patient.” 

In addition to having some of the shortest ER wait times, Morgan Medical Center also boasts a higher-than-average recommendation rating. This award is a testament to Morgan Medical Center’s dedication to its patient community and is paramount, as prompt care is crucial for women’s health.

The Women’s Choice Award compiled a list of 606 hospitals that have met the highest standards for emergency timeliness in the country. The Women’s Choice Award for Best Hospitals™ is a trusted referral source and coveted credential that identifies the nation’s best hospitals based on robust criteria that include relevant clinical performance, patient satisfaction, and appropriate accreditations.

“As a community hospital, we’re especially proud to be recognized among the top providers of timely emergency services in the country,” Castillo says. “It only strengthens our resolve to offer best-in-class care close to home while preserving our vision to be a patient focused center of excellence”
