FORT WAYNE -- Dupont Hospital has been named one of the 100 Great Community Hospitals by Becker’s Hospital Review, local officials announced today.

The list recognizes outstanding hospitals with fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs, based on data compiled from numerous sources, including Thomson Reuters, iVantage Health Analytics and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Dupont, which is part of Lutheran Health Network, is the only hospital in the region on the list. Six other Indiana hospitals made the top 100, including Columbus Regional Hospital; Franciscan St. Francis Health, Indianapolis; and St. Vincent Carmel Hospital.

This is Dupont’s second top 100 appearance this year. In April, the hospital was included on Thomson Reuter’s top 100 hospitals list.
