The award is presented by eQHealth Solutions, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for Louisiana. Doctors Hospital at Deer Creek was recognized for its quality initiatives in those areas.
The hospital ranked number 18 on the Top 50 Hospitals for Physician Communication list.

“This recognition is testament to the dedication of our entire staff,” Bash said. “Everyone at Doctors Hospital sets an expectation of excellence and works together to give our community the best healthcare possible.”
