Why this Sacramento-area hospital ranked No. 2 on national list of engaged hospitals

Abstract: “Hospitals are members of their communities, and when we think about them and when we try to understand what their performance is like, we wanted to be able to think about ways we might measure their participation or engagement ... in the community,” said Dr. Vikas Saini, Lown’s president and a cardiologist. “With the (coronavirus) pandemic, I think more than ever the idea that hospitals need to be real partners with their communities has become much clearer to a lot of people.”
