“We are truly honored that these prestigious hospitals and health
systems entrust Spok to support their clinical communication and
collaboration needs,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief
executive officer of Spok Holdings, Inc. “We extend our deepest
congratulations to these organizations. We look forward to continually
supporting their missions as they provide the best care to advance the

U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals rankings have been conducted
for more than 25 years and are among the most referenced by consumers
because they are based primarily on objective data, such as patient
survival rates and hospital resources. Each hospital's reputation, as
determined by a survey of physician specialists, is also a factor. This
year they surveyed nearly 5,000 medical centers across the country
spanning 25 medical specialties, procedures, and conditions. To receive
a spot on this prestigious honor roll, hospitals had to earn very high
scores in at least six specialties.
“These healthcare organizations are the best of the best, and
communication plays a key role in delivering excellent care,” said
Hemant Goel, president of Spok, Inc. “We’re pleased our solutions can
work behind the scenes to connect care providers with one another and
with clinical messaging to help improve patient outcomes.”
