From Truven Health Analytics, 100 Top Hospitals

The 100 Top Hospitals® study uses objective research and independent public data to recognize the best U.S. hospitals. Hospitals do not apply and winners do not pay to market this honor.

Our annual study is unique in that it evaluates hospitals on measures of overall organization performance, including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability. It compares hospitals only against similar facilities in terms of size and teaching status.

Identified from nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals, our award winners demonstrate that high-quality patient outcomes can be achieved while improving efficiency.  If all hospitals performed at the same level as the 100 Top Hospitals award winners*:

  • More than 164,000 additional lives could be saved.
  • Nearly 82,000 additional patients could be complication free.
  • $6 billion could be saved.
  • The average patient stay would decrease by nearly half a day.

*Based on analysis of Medicare inpatients over one year.
