HARRISBURG, Pa, (July 13, 2015) — PinnacleHealth West Shore Hospital has been named one of the most beautiful hospitals in the United States by Soliant Health, a leading specialty healthcare staffing provider and part of Adecco Group. West Shore Hospital was one of only two hospitals in Pennsylvania to make the list.


“The West Shore Hospital wasn’t just a building project. It was our chance to transform healthcare, and it is an honor to have our efforts recognized nationally,” said Michael Young, president and CEO for PinnacleHealth System. “The West Shore Hospital set the standard for patient-centered design, and we’ve been able to mirror these elements for patient privacy, bedside technology, and a healing environment through renovations and upgrades at all of our hospitals.”


For the seventh year in a row, Soliant Health turned to hospital staff, patients, and fellow supporters to determine the Top 20 hospitals worthy of the “Most Beautiful Hospital in the U.S.” distinction. More than 70 nominations later, Soliant opened up the contest to a month-long voting period to determine its winners. This year, Soliant received nearly 400,000 votes, making 2015 the most successful year in its contest history thus far in terms of vote counts. West Shore Hospital was No. 13 on the list and received 5,857 votes.


PinnacleHealth West Shore Hospital, which opened May 2014, was recognized for patient-centered design. The hospital features 108 private rooms designed to provide a relaxing environment for inpatient care. Noise-reducing materials were used to create a setting more conducive to healing. Every room also features a digital whiteboard that allows nurses and physicians the ability to inform and update the patient about his or her care.
