Rose Medical Center Named One of the Nation’s Top 100 Hospitals By Truven Health Analytics

DENVER – March 3, 2014 – Rose Medical Center was today named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics. Truven Health Analytics is a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. This is the 7th time that Rose has been recognized with this honor.

The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard. The scorecard measures hospital performance across 10 areas: mortality; inpatient 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.

"I am so proud to work with our staff, physicians and volunteers who show commitment, passion and willingness to do what is right for every patient every day."

“Our vision at Rose is to provide insanely great care for our patients, and our continued recognition with this elite group of hospitals tells me that we are well on our way to that goal,” said Kenneth Feiler, President & CEO of Rose Medical Center. “I am so proud to work with our staff, physicians and volunteers who show commitment, passion and willingness to do what is right for every patient every day.”

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated 2,803 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 & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.

The winning hospitals were announced in the Feb. 28 issue of Modern Healthcare magazine.

“Employers and payers are increasingly seeking network hospitals that consistently provide demonstrated value – hospitals that deliver higher quality, higher satisfaction and lower cost. The 100 Top Hospitals have been objectively proven to provide high value, and the majority of them have demonstrated a year-over-year increased value, as well,” said Jean Chenoweth, Truven Health Analytics senior vice president, 100 Top Hospitals Programs. “The results show 100 Top Hospitals to be strong, well-managed hospitals with consistently high performance.”

If all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in the award-winning facilities:

  • More than 165,000 additional lives could be saved.
  • Nearly 90,000 additional patients could be complication-free.
  • $5.4 billion could be saved.
  • The average patient stay would decrease by half a day.

If the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater. For more information, please visit www.100tophospitals.com.
