Dorset County Hospital's been shortlisted for a top award for its quality of care.
The judging criteria includes the length of patients stay and the rate of emergency re-admissions.
The CHKS Top Hospitals awards celebrate the success of healthcare providers across the UK and are given to acute organisations for their achievements in healthcare quality and improvement.
Jason Harries, managing director, CHKS said: "Every hospital is accountable to its patients, their families and carers as well as the local community to provide a safe environment. Our quality of care award highlights those trusts that clearly share a commitment to driving improvement and engendering a culture of excellence throughout their organisations and it is a credit to the staff at Dorset County Hospital that it has been shortlisted in this area."
Dorset County will find out if it's a winner at an awards ceremony at the end of the month (30 April).
