The five-phase reconstruction project finished ahead of schedule and no hospital services were interrupted.The final phases of the reconstruction project included surgical suites and the post surgical recovery unit.
Community Health Needs Assessment
As part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, every non-profit hospital is required to conduct a community-based needs assessment (CHNA) every three years. To meet that requirement, Hancock Medical recently conducted a community health needs assessment and from the data gathered, identified priority health needs. An implementation strategy to address these needs has been developed. The CHNA is available here on our web site for public review. Please click below:

Hancock Medical Earns "A" on Hospital Safety Score
Washington, DC – Hancock Medical Center was honored with an “A” Hospital Safety ScoreSM by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The Hospital Safety ScoreSM was calculated under the guidance of The Leapfrog Group’s Blue Ribbon Expert Panel using publicly available data on patient injuries, medical and medication errors, and infections. More than 2,600 hospitals in the United States were assigned a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F for their safety.
Hospitals were the first to provide quality data to the public and have been doing so for more than a decade so that communities know the effort being made to continually improve patient care.
“It’s The Leapfrog Group’s goal to give patients the information they need and deserve before even entering a hospital,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “We congratulate the hospitals that earned an ‘A’ and we look forward to the day when all hospitals in the U.S. will earn the highest scores for putting patient safety first.”
To see Hancock Medical’s scores as they compare nationally and locally, visit www.hospitalsafetyscore.org, the Hospital Safety ScoreSM website, which also provides information on how the public can protect themselves and loved ones during a hospital stay.
