(Media release from AdventHealth Redmond):
AdventHealth Redmond was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Fortune and Merative. This is the third year in a row that the hospital has been recognized with this accolade.
Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, has identified the top hospitals from a rigorous evaluation of 2,650 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in the U.S. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience and financial health. Merative, formerly IBM Watson Health, established the list to help identify best practices that may help other health care organizations achieve consistent, balanced and sustainable high performance.
“It’s a great honor to have AdventHealth Redmond included in the list of 100 Top Hospitals,” said Mike Murrill, president and CEO of AdventHealth Redmond and the Southeast Region. “Earning this recognition for the third year in a row is a testament to the dedication of our team. I’m thankful to work alongside them as we fulfill our mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ.”
The 100 Top Hospitals list is broken down into 5 categories, including 15 top major teaching hospitals, 25 top teaching hospitals, 20 top large community hospitals, 20 top medium community hospitals and 20 top small community hospitals. AdventHealth Redmond was recognized as the number one top teaching hospital. The hospital received 5 stars for clinical outcomes, operation efficiency, patient experience and financial health.
Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals demonstrates AdventHealth Redmond’s ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care. According to Merative, as compared to similar hospitals, the hospitals included on the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list had better results on key clinical and operational performance indicators. These include survival rates, patient complications, health care associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide readmission rates, length of stay, throughput in emergency departments, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from patients.
The Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals lists also incorporates a community health measure into its ranking process. For the community health measure, hospitals were surveyed across three components: 1) assessing hospital contributions to community health as a provider of critical services for community health and preventive care; 2) identifying ways that hospitals contribute to community health as a community partner teaming up with local organizations to implement critical programs; and 3) focusing on ways that hospitals promote community health through their practices as anchor institutions supporting local economic and social progress. The community health measure is weighted equally with other ranking measures.
