The Joint Commission Recognizes 110 HCA Hospitals As Top Performers

HCA (NYSE:HCA), one of the nation's leading providers of healthcare services, today announced that 110 of its licensed hospitals in the U.S. are included among The Joint Commission’s new 2013 list of Top Performers on Key Quality Measures™.

Eighty percent of HCA’s hospitals are on TJC’s list of 1,099, which is the top one-third of all TJC hospitals reporting core measure performance data for 2012. There are 55 HCA hospitals that have been Top Performers all three years of the program’s existence, and 20 HCA hospitals are first-time Top Performers.

“This distinction by The Joint Commission is significant because the measures they use to determine Top Performers are based on scientific evidence about practices that lead to better patient outcomes,” said Dr. Jonathan B. Perlin, HCA’s Chief Medical Officer and President of the Company’s Clinical and Physician Services Group. “We are pleased that 80 percent of our hospitals have been recognized for their clinical excellence and are listed among the top U.S. hospitals.”

Hospitals on The Joint Commission’s list met the following criteria: First, each hospital achieved performance of 95 percent or above on a single, composite score that includes all the accountability data for which it reports data to The Joint Commission, including measures that had fewer than 30 eligible cases or patients. Second, each hospital also met a 95 percent performance threshold for every accountability measure for which it reports data to The Joint Commission, excluding measures with fewer than 30 eligible cases or patients.

A full list of HCA’s licensed hospitals on The Joint Commission’s Top Performers list is attached to this press release.
