Posted: Thursday, March 8, 2018

Parkview Huntington Hospital (PHH) leaders announced today that the healthcare facility has been recognized among the 100 Top Hospitals® in the nation for a remarkable sixth time.

“This is such exciting news,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington. “Earning this prestigious recognition six times and for the past five consecutive years shows our patients they can continue to expect consistency in the high quality of the care we provide. We’re so pleased to be acknowledged as a top performer among all U.S. hospitals of our size, as it really validates our efforts to build a world-class team of people dedicated to bringing the best of healthcare to our neighbors here in Huntington County.”

PHH was among the honorees whose performance received praise based on the IBM Watson Health™ 100 Top Hospitals study, which has been conducted annually since 1993. The study uses independent and objective research to analyze hospital and health system 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).
