“It is an honor to receive this recognition from such a widely known and respected publication,” said Brett Aldridge, senior vice president, Baptist Health Care. “Being named a Best Regional Hospital affirms what we already know about the exemplary level of care our physicians and team members provide to patients. We are thrilled to see the work of our compassionate, skilled and experienced caregivers recognized.”
