On February 28, 2016, Pomerene Hospital was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health AnalyticsTM, a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.
“The 2016 100 Top Hospitals award winners represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Truven Health Analytics. “Hospitals in three out of the five report groups actually reduced overall expense year over year, while improving patient outcomes – exactly the results that the entire industry hopes to attain.”
The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard measuring overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. This is first time Pomerene has been recognized with this honor.
“What makes this award truly meaningful to not only us, but to our community, is that hospitals do not apply or pay to be included in the study,” stated Tony Snyder, CEO of Pomerene Hospital. “The study uses independent public data that includes nearly 3,000 hospitals across the country. Of those 3,000 hospitals, we finished in the Top 100. We have always been confident in the high quality care we provide, but to see it recognized through this study confirms to our employees, physicians and volunteers that their hard work and dedication has truly made a positive impact in the lives of patients who have, and will enter our doors.”
To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, non-federal hospitals. 100 Top Hospitals researchers use risk-adjusted methodologies to analyze public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the CMS Hospital Compare reports. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.
