ROTHERHAM Hospital has been named among the top 40 in the country for the way it cares for its patients.
The accolade was presented at a recent ceremony by healthcare specialists CHKS.
It is the second year running that the Moorgate hospital has clinched a spot on the
Top Hospitals Programme top 40 which was launched in 2001.
Brian James, chief executive, said: "We're delighted to get this award and it's a wonderful tribute to all our staff.
“We aim to provide the best possible healthcare to all the communities we serve and it's nice that the passion and dedication of our staff can be recognised in this way.
"Because these awards are independently assessed they are more valuable to us. The judges review a significant range of quality and performance indicators before deciding on the winners, so it is a great honour.
“Awards are always nice to receive but what is really important to us is that this increasingly reflects the experience our patients take away from Rotherham Hospital."
Director of research at CHKS, James Coles, added: "We are thrilled that The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust has been named as one of our 40 top hospitals.
“These awards recognise outstanding performance in 21 areas which we believe are critical to delivering good patient care."
