Awards & Recognitions

Because you have many choices in today’s health care community, we believe it is important to provide you with information about our hospital quality and patient safety measures. While awards and recognition from outside organizations affirm that we are a quality choice for your family’s care, it should not be the only area considered when selecting a hospital.

Core measure performance is used to measure the quality of care provided by the hospital and its physicians for patients with a specific diagnosis. WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital continuously monitors and tracks the care of our patients. For more information on the data that we measure on a quarterly basis, visit
