Chandler Regional Medical Center was awarded 2013 Hospital of the Year by Arizona Business Magazine during the Health Care Leadership Awards on March 7.

Chandler Regional was chosen from among hundreds of applicants based on the hospital’s history, responsibilities, commitment to excellence and community involvement. Barrow Neurological Institute, Chandler Regional’s sister organization with an East Valley office, was also among the winners with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

This Hospital of the Year award marks Chandler Regional’s first Health Care Leadership Award, but Chief Medical Officer Terry Happel, M.D. was recognized as Hospital Executive of the Year in 2009. Earlier this month, Arizona Business Magazine also announced Chandler Regional as the No. 1 Acute Care Hospital (200-339 beds) for the third year in a row, fifth time overall.
