Atrium Medical Center Recognized as Top Performer in U.S.
MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (February 12, 2019) – Atrium Medical Center has been recognized by Healthgrades® as being among the best hospitals in the country.
Atrium Medical Center, operated by Premier Health, earned the America's 250 Best Hospitals Award™ from Healthgrades for a fifth consecutive year, meaning that the Middletown hospital continues to rank in the top 5 percent of hospitals in the nation.
“This ranking – along with our recent Magnet® Recognition – reflects Atrium Medical Center’s commitment and ability to serve the community with nationally-recognized levels of high-quality care,” said Dr. Keith Bricking, president of the Middletown hospital and Warren County’s only trauma center. “Atrium caregivers go to great lengths to ensure patients receive quality care, and this award is a testament to their diligent, compassionate work.”
Additionally, Premier Health’s Miami Valley Hospital received a fourth consecutive America's 100 Best Hospitals Award™ from Healthgrades – once again placing the hospital in Dayton in the top 2 percent of hospitals in the country. Prior to 2016, the hospital ranked in the top 250 hospitals in the country for two years.
“All of our employees take great pride in setting the bar high for what it means to deliver quality health care to patients in Southwest Ohio,” said Mary Boosalis, president and CEO of Premier Health. “We remain committed to taking our care to an even higher level through transforming how we provide health care and improving access to our physicians and services throughout the region.”

For this year’s awards, the organization analyzed Medicare Provider Analysis and Review data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the years 2015 through 2017 – which amounts to more than 45 million Medicare medical claims records from nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide.
