The nation’s largest accreditor of health care facilities named 11 local hospitals “top performers” Wednesday for their performance on key quality measures in 2012.

The Joint Commission, which accredits and certifies more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs nationwide, published the list, which includes 1,099 hospitals throughout the United States, on Wednesday as part of its annual “Improving America’s Hospitals” report.
