100 Top Hospitals – Thomson Reuters Top Hospitals

By

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals: National Benchmarks is an annual, quantitative study that identifies the best hospitals, overall, as measured on the 100 Top Hospitals Balanced Scorecard. Hospitals are evaluated against similar hospitals, in terms of size and teaching status.

 

This year’s best hospitals are setting new standards compared to similar hospitals. If all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those in the 100 Top Hospitals winners:

 

  • 98,000 additional patients would survive each year.
  • About 197,000 patient complications would be avoided annually.
  • Expenses would decrease $5.5 billion a year.
  • The average patient stay would decrease by nearly half a day.

 

If the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater.
