Mary Rutan Hospital Nationally Recognized in Outstanding Patient Care with Healthgrades 2014 Outstanding Patient Experience Award

Bellefontaine, OH (July 16th, 2014) – Mary Rutan Hospital is ranked among the top hospitals in the nation for patient experience based on an analysis of patient surveys from 3,582 hospitals across the country by Healthgrades, the leading independent ratings organization. 

Achieving one of only two spots in the central Ohio market area has been “the culmination of many years of patient-focused initiatives within the hospital and to have achieved this goal for the second straight year is a testament to our ongoing commitment,” says Mandy Goble, president and CEO of Mary Rutan Hospital.
