North County Times

The nation’s largest hospital accreditation agency has named Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas among the top 18 percent of hospitals nationwide for hitting quality goals in 2011. The Joint Commission, which accredits 10,300 hospitals and home care organizations across the United States, released its “top performers” list Wednesday.

The commission collects data on 45 accountability measures from the hospitals it accredits, and it analyzed that data to recognize 620 hospitals nationwide as top performers.
