Awards and Recognitions

 

French Hospital is proud to be your award-winning community hospital. Our awards and accolades are a testament to the excellence and dedication of our highly skilled physicians, employees and volunteers. We believe in transparency and we believe your hospital should provide the highest level of quality health care and be held to a high standard for that quality and for safety.

 Below are two lists of our most recent awards.  The first comes from Healthgrades. The second list is from non-biased, unsolicited health care ratings organizations who have honored us with quality and excellence awards.

French Hospital Medical Center has a long and rich history. We have served San Luis Obispo County for nearly 70 years, and will continue to be your award-winning medical center, well into the future. We are pleased to announce that we has been named one of the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® for a second time by Truven Health Analytics, a leading provider of information solutions to improve the cost and quality of health care.
