Centerpoint Medical Center — part of HCA Midwest Health, announced they have achieved the Healthgrades 2021 America’s 250 Best Hospitals Award™. The distinction places Centerpoint Medical Center in the top five percent of nearly 4,500 hospitals assessed across the U.S. for its superior clinical performance according to Healthgrades, the leading resource that connects consumers, physicians and health systems.

I am grateful to work beside them and it is a privilege for us to serve patients and their families every day, during their greatest time of need.”
