St. David's Medical Center And St. David's North Austin Medical Center Named Among Nation's 100 Top Hospitals® By Truven Health Analytics

"The winners of the 100 Top Hospitals award have driven the national benchmarks higher every year for 20 years," Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Truven Health Analytics, said. "This year's winners have brought even higher value to their local communities—better quality, higher efficiency and high patient perceptions of care—while confronting the challenges of massive industry-wide transformation to implement healthcare reform. The key to success in a tumultuous environment is visionary leadership that develops and maintains a hospital-wide culture of excellence that cuts across everything, from patient care to housekeeping to administration, and the refusal to rest on laurels when it comes to adopting new technologies and techniques. I congratulate this year's winners for their persistent drive for excellence."

In recent years, many organizations have begun ranking hospitals, and it is often difficult for the average consumer to determine which rankings carry the most weight. Unlike many of these that are more subjective in nature, the Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals rankings are purely objective, with no reputational component, and winners neither apply for the award nor pay to market the recognition. The 100 Top Hospitals study is annual, quantitative research that uses objective methodology and independent public data to recognize the best U.S. hospitals. The public data come primarily from the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) dataset, the Medicare Cost Report and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare dataset. It also considers comparisons with other facilities similar in size and teaching status.

The winning hospitals were announced in the February 25 edition of Modern Healthcare magazine. Please visit www.100TopHospitals.com to view the complete list of 2013 winners or for more information on the award and 100 Top Hospitals research.

In January 2012, St. David's HealthCare was recognized as one of the top 15 health systems in the U.S. by Thomson Reuters, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. In April 2012, four of the system's facilities—St. David's Medical Center, St. David's North Austin Medical Center, St. David's Round Rock Medical Center and St. David's Georgetown Hospital—were named to the list of 100 top hospitals in the U.S. by Thomson Reuters. Additionally, Heart Hospital of Austin, a campus of St. David's Medical Center, was named a Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospital for 2012.
