What does is mean to be a Top 100 Hospital?

Last week, Rose Medical Center was named of the nation’s Top 100 Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics, a provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. Rose was the only hospital in Denver to make the list this year, and this is the sixth time that Rose has made this exclusive list.

But there are plenty of healthcare awards out there, so what does this one actually mean? Truven Health Analytics looks at a variety of measures, from complication rates to Core Measures to readmission rates to HCAHPS. It encompasses quality patient care, patient satisfaction, operational efficiencies and overall organization performance.

In fact, Truven shares that if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in Top 100 Hospitals:

  • More than 164,000 additional lives could be saved;
  • Approximately 82,000 additional patients could be complication free;
  • More than $6 billion could be saved;
  • And, the average patient stay would decrease by nearly half a day.

If those same standards were applied to all inpatients (not just Medicare), the impact Rose Frontwould be even greater.

So it’s no wonder that the leadership, staff and physicians at Rose are excited to be named on this list again!

Congratulations to the everyone at Rose for this achievement!
