Advocate Health Care Named Again to 100 Top Hospitals List
In recognition of its performance on measures of patient safety, inpatient and outpatient quality of care, financial stability, operational efficiency and patient experience, Advocate Health Care has once again been named to the 100 Top Hospitals list by Truven Health Analytics.
Two hospitals in the Advocate system – Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois, and Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Illinois, were among only five Chicagoland area hospitals that achieved the recognition. Advocate Lutheran General Hospital was recognized for the 17th time, tied for highest on the list.
“It is an incredible honor for our physicians, nurses and associates to be recognized among the top-performing hospitals in the country for delivering excellent medical care,” said Jim Skogsbergh, president and chief executive officer of Advocate Health Care. “It speaks to the system’s extraordinary devotion to the communities we serve, and demonstrates our commitment to continually improve not only patient outcomes, but the entire patient experience.”
This year’s winners were chosen from 3,000 eligible U.S. hospitals. Key performance benchmarks for award winners included survival rates, readmission rates and shorter length of stay among others.
