What it means
to be a Health Grades America's 50 Best Hospital:
It’s one thing to win an award. It’s quite another to receive the HealthGrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence ™ six years in a row. CHRISTUS Santa Rosa is the only hospital in San Antonio to receive such a distinction, and one of only three hospitals in Texas to be so honored. CHRISTUS Santa Rosa is rated in the top 5% of adult hospitals nationally. Most importantly, the results come from HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent health care ratings company.
Only one percent of the nation's hospitals achieve this each year. These hospitals are doing something very special. These hospitals are proof that providing top-notch medical care is possible. As our nation increasingly focuses on disparities in health care cost and quality, it is these elite, world-class facilities that will lead the way.
