THE Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust has been voted one of the best in the country.
It was named in the top 16 in the country by the Healthcare Commission.
The commission said Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and the Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax were excellent in their admissions service for patients.
The commission assessed the trust in a wide range of areas.
These included how efficiently patients were managed through the accident and emergency department and how quickly patients were admitted into the medical and surgical admissions units.
The review also looked at the length of time people waited for a different range of operations.
It took into consideration the results of the national patients' survey.
The trust's assistant divisional director for medicine and elderly services, Judy Moorhouse, said: "This is excellent news for our patients.
"It recognises that our staff work hard to make sure our patients get quality treatment which is both efficient and caring."
She said patients' views played an important part in all system and service change.
The commission assessed 153 acute trusts across England.
Sixteen were scored excellent, 14 were weak, 62 were good and 61 were fair.
