In a recent nationwide rating, the results are in and the experts agree, Steward's nurses provide some of the best care in the country.
In the survey conducted by The Leapfrog Group, a nationally recognized hospital rating organization, seven Steward hospitals achieved a perfect 100 score.
This score represents the high standard of care our nurses provide as well as their outstanding level of staffing, leadership, governance and patient safety.
Steward is very proud of the hard work of all our nurses and in particular those at Carney, Norwood and Saint Anne's Hospitals and at Good Samaritan, Nashoba Valley, Quincy and St. Elizabeth's where the perfect scores were earned. We are even prouder of the amazing care every one of our nurses provides to the patients and the communities they serve.
Their efforts show why our nurses are truly Stewards of The New Health Care.
