St. Vincent Healthcare has been named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics®, part of the IBM Watson HealthTM business. Truven Health Analytics is a leading provider of information and solutions that support healthcare cost and quality improvement.
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals is the most comprehensive, academically driven study of its kind. It evaluates clinical and operational performance in 11 areas, addressing: inpatient mortality, 30-day mortality rate, complications, core measures, 30-day risk-adjusted readmission rate, severity-adjusted average length of stay, mean emergency room throughput, inpatient expense per discharge, Medicare spend per beneficiary, adjusted operating profit margin and Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score (patient rating of overall hospital performance). The study has been conducted annually since 1993.
“St. Vincent Healthcare is proud and honored to be selected as a Top 100 Hospital by Truven for a second year in a row. Truven is the most highly regarded hospital ranking program and it takes a great deal of work, effort and process by our associates and medical staff to receive this recognition,” said St. Vincent Healthcare Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Bush. “At St. Vincent Healthcare, our mission is to improve the health of the people and communities we serve. This recognition is just one example of how we are living out our mission.”
