PHH named to nation's top 100 hospitals

Posted: Friday, March 6, 2015

Parkview Huntington Hospital was this week named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics, a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.

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. The 100 Top Hospitals balanced scorecard measures overall organizational performance across eleven key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. This is the third time Parkview Huntington Hospital has been recognized with this honor.

“Together, our co-workers, leadership team and medical staff are dedicated to providing the highest quality of healthcare to the community,” said Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital. “Being recognized for the third time by Truven Health Analytics confirms our passion to achieve success in healthcare.”

This is the second year in a row Parkview Huntington Hospital has earned this recognition. Parkview Huntington Hospital was one of 20 hospitals chosen in the small hospital (25-99 beds) category, and the only hospital from Indiana.

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, non-federal hospitals. Risk-adjusted methodologies were used to analyze public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare reports. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.

The winning hospitals were announced in the March 2, 2015, edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.

“This year’s 100 Top Hospitals represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management today. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow — consistently delivering outstanding quality of care, satisfaction and community value at a reasonable cost,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance improvement and the 100 Top Hospitals program at Truven Health Analytics. “The majority of the 2015 award winners have produced year-to-year performance improvement, as well. This speaks to the consistent focus on excellence by the entire organization and the men and women who serve patients.”
