Edward named one of nation's 100 Top Hospitals by Thomson Reuters.
Edward Hospital has been named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals by Thomson Reuters, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.
According to Thomson Reuters, a 100 Top Hospitals award winner is one of the best in the nation in providing care that is effective, safe and patient-centered; is more likely to have systems to safeguard patients from medical errors, provide treatments proven to get results, and deliver effective care at a reasonable cost; and is also a financially stable employer with high scores in patient perception of care.
"We're extremely proud and honored to be recognized as one of the top hospitals in the country," says Pam Davis, Edward president & CEO. "This is a tribute to every person who works at Edward and contributes to the care of our patients and it serves as a confirmation of our commitment to providing quality care."
Edward made the 100 Top Hospitals list in the Large Community Hospitals category and is one of five non-teaching hospitals in Illinois to make the list.
The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals award is the latest in a series of honors that recognizes the quality of care provided by Edward. Just last fall, Thomson Reuters recognized Edward as one of its 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in the country. Edward also was recently ranked #1 in Illinois for Cardiology Services by HealthGrades and designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. In addition, Linden Oaks at Edward was awarded the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission for its Bipolar Disorders and Depression programs and recertified in Addiction Services, Eating Disorders, Dementia and Self-Injury.
The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.
To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Thomson Reuters researchers evaluated 2,914 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals. They used public information - Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website. Hospitals do not apply and winners do not pay to market this honor.
