John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital’s Specialty Surgical Care unit recently was honored as a 2014 Professional Research Consultants (PRC) Top Scoring Nursing unit for Inpatient Surgical Service Overall Quality of Care Award Performer award winner. This unit also won a 5-Star Excellence award.

PRC Top Scorers must score at or above the 100th percentile within their particular comparison group, while 5-Star Award winners are identified as the top 10 percent (at or above the 90th percentile) of PRC’s national client database.
