KIRKLAND, Wash., Oct. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Evergreen Healthcare today announced that it has received the Stroke Care and Pulmonary Care Excellence Awards for 2012 from HealthGrades, placing it among the top 5 percent of hospitals nationwide for its superior patient outcomes and significantly reduced mortality rates for stroke treatment and pulmonary services.

"Evergreen strives to provide the pinnacle of excellent, patient-centered clinical care across all of our specialties, and we are very proud of HealthGrades' continued recognition of our stroke and pulmonary programs."

In addition to the awards for stroke and pulmonary care, Evergreen has also received several other HealthGrades Five-Star ratings this year, including:
