ATLANTA, Georgia — After a nationwide vote that ended June 15, Soliant Health announced its top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in America honorees today. Making the list at No. 10 is Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma. More than 248,000 votes were turned in during the annual contest, which was almost double the amount of votes the contest received last year. This was the sixth year for the Most Beautiful Hospital Contest.

“Our team put a lot of thought behind each design decision made during the construction of Summit Pacific,” said Summit Pacific CEO Renee Jensen. “We have been and continue to be passionate about bringing the same level of care and facilities seen in larger urban areas to our small community. So it’s really exciting see our community’s support result in a national ranking for both our facility and the city of Elma.”

With more than 6,500 votes, Soliant shares that Summit Pacific is the embodiment of modern and welcoming. Coming in at the No. 1 spot was McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah. One other Washington hospital made the top-20 list, and that was number at No. 18, Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center in Vancouver.
