JAMAICA HILLS—Faulkner Hospital last month was named one of the nation’s top performers on key health care quality measures by The Joint Commission, which accredits hospitals.

Faulkner was recognized for high performance with procedures that improve outcomes for heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.

Faulkner was one of 405 hospitals nationwide earning the distinction. It was one of only six Massachusetts hospitals on the list, and the only one honored as a top performer in three or more clinical conditions.

Faulkner is a 150-bed community teaching hospital. For more information, see faulknerhospital.org.
