Community hospitals play a vital role within the broader healthcare landscape by providing accessible primary care, emergency services, continuity of care, specialized care, healthcare access for underserved populations, economic benefits and support for disaster response and public health preparedness. They are integral to the health and well-being of the communities they serve, embodying the principle of healthcare as a fundamental, equitable human right.

Recently, three Sutter Health hospitals were named “Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review. Only eight other California hospitals made the list this year.

Recognized hospitals are known for clinical excellence, compassionate care, positive economic impact on their communities and more. Many of the hospitals listed have been honored as top-ranking by award agencies for their stellar patient outcomes and performance in specialty care services.

Sutter hospitals recognized include:

Sutter’s Eden Medical Center | Located in Castro Valley, the 130-bed hospital is the regional Level II trauma center for Southern Alameda County and features various centers of excellence, including neuroscience, orthopedics, rehabilitation, birthing center, imaging, stroke, cancer care and healing garden. The medical center first opened its doors in 1954 and throughout the decades has expanded its buildings, programs and services to meet the community’s healthcare needs. In 2023, Eden Medical Center was named among America’s Top 50 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades, earned high-performing ratings by U.S. News & World Report and received five stars — the highest ranking possible — by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) overall hospital quality star ratings.
