Highline Medical Center Is A Top 10 "Healing Hospital"

Burien’s Highline Medical Center [1] has been chosen as one of the “Top 10 Healing Hospitals [2]” for 2008 by Baptist Healing Trust [3], a Christian foundation based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Highline was singled out as lucky number seven in the list. This year’s six-member selection panel reviewed hospitals coast-to-coast before making their decisions about the winners. Panel members consisted of Presidents & CEOs from hospitals and health systems across the nation.

The “Healing Hospital” recognition was created to honor hospitals and leaders that have made a special commitment to creating cultures that demonstrate compassion and quality. Each hospital honored in the list has “demonstrated extraordinary commitment to patient and employee-centered care,” according to the release.

They are also noted for embarking upon a journey of establishing a Healing Hospital environment.

In addition to Highline, this year’s recipients include:

“This is wonderful recognition and a real tribute to our staff and medical staff for all they do to support the Planetree philosophy of patient-centered care at Highline Medical Center. We are honored to receive this distinction alongside such well-respected hospitals from across the nation,” stated Mark Benedum, CEO of Highline Medical Center.  “This recognition supports our mission of providing high quality, compassionate health care in a healing environment to our patients and the community.”
