Amarillo Health System Named One of the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals
BSA Health System was recognized by Truven Health Analytics for its outstanding service.
The 100 Top Hospitals are chosen based on factors like patient care, financial stability, and management. According to these standards, BSA meets the criteria of an outstanding hospital.
Over 3,000 hospitals were evaluated to create the list. They surveyed only short-term, acute-care, non-federal hospitals. Truven Health Analytics has named the 100 Top Hospitals since 1993.
Bob Williams, CEO of BSA, said that BSA fosters an environment of prestigious patient care with a mission of Christian love.
St. Anthony's was started in 1901 by four women to provide much-needed health care to the people of Amarillo. In the 1950's, Amarillo's population almost doubled, so another hospital was built to provide more people with health care. In 1996, the High Plains Baptist Hospital, St. Anthony's competitor, consolidated to created Baptist St. Anthony's. Finally, in 2013, BSA joined Ardent Health Services and became BSA Health System.
The hospital is the fourth-largest employer in Amarillo, with over 3,000 employees including almost 500 physicians.
