For the third consecutive year, Augusta Health is getting great marks, ranking among the top 100 hospitals in the country.

Judges scrutinized nearly 5,000 hospitals in the U.S. to come up with Healthgrades’ exclusive list.

According to Healthgrades, which studies the safety of health care providers across America, Augusta Health falls into the top 2 percent when it comes to survival and optimum outcomes for patients. Hospital leaders credit the accomplishment to teamwork.

The list is basically based on the overall safety for patients entering a hospital. The judges also create and profile and track hospitals over a period of several years.

Augusta Health executives say there's still room for progress before reaching their ultimate goal.

"Our goal is to be the best community hospital in Virginia, and we feel that our community is very deserving of nothing other than the best in terms of clinical quality. This recognition belongs to the medical staff, the direct patient care team and all of the employees of Augusta Health,” said Mary Mannix, president and CEO of Augusta Health.

Healthgrades also recognized Augusta Health in the category of clinical excellence.

Augusta Health was also named a top 100 hospital by Thomson Reuters in 2011 and 2012.
