Recognizes top cities for patient care
DENVER | February 20, 2013
A new report released Feb. 19 recognizes the nation’s best hospitals for 2013 in addition to top cities in the United States for hospital care based on in-hospital mortality rates. Dayton, Ohio; Phoenix; and Milwaukee came out on top, all seeing mortality rates less than 5 percent.
Also among the top cities for hospital care, when taking into account the risk-adjusted in-hospital mortality rates, were Cincinnati, Deltona/Daytona Beach, Fla., Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Detroit and Rochester, Minn.
The report, “America’s Best Hospitals 2013: Navigating Variability in Hospital Quality,” conducted by Healthgrades, showed some states came up empty handed with the best hospital awards, including Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Vermont and West Virginia. Moreover, many states that have been consistently recognized for having the top hospitals in the nation – such as Massachusetts, home of Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s, and Washington, home of the University of Washington Medical Center – also did not make the cut.
By contrast, Florida (13 hospitals recognized); Ohio; Michigan; and California (all with nine hospitals recognized) walked away with the most awards. “The America’s Best Hospitals distinction provides a measure of confidence for consumers,” said Evan Marks, executive vice president, Informatics and Strategy, Healthgrades, in a statement. “Each hospital’s exceptional performance reflects a dedication and approach to quality which has been evidenced across the organization and has been demonstrated consistently in terms of superior clinical outcomes.” According to report officials, if all hospitals analyzed in the report performed at the level of the top hospitals, up to 165,000 lives could have been saved.

- Mar 3 by VespertinasThis is nice but I want to point out that some hospitals I'm looking at on this list are ones that reject surgical candidates for complicating factors and then those patients get sent to my facility.
- Mar 4 by lkulmannIt would be interesting to place a list of MAGNET approved hospitals along side of this list and see the correlation...
