ROSE MEDICAL CENTER IS DENVER’S ONLY TOP 100 HOSPITAL AS NAMED BY TRUVEN HEALTH ANALYTICS

DENVER – March 2, 2015 – Rose Medical Center was today named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics,™ a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. Rose is the only hospital in Denver to receive this distinction, and this is the 8th 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 100 Top Hospitals balanced scorecard measures overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures, including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.

“At Rose, our vision is to provide insanely great care for every person, every time,” said Kenneth Feiler, President & CEO of Rose Medical Center. “We are very honored to be included with this distinguished group of hospitals again this year and believe it is a reflection of the dedication and commitment of our staff and our physicians who care for our patients every day.”

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, nonfederal hospitals. Risk-adjusted methodologies were used to analyze 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 reports. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.

The winning hospitals were announced in the March 2, 2015, edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.

“This year’s 100 Top Hospitals represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management today. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow — consistently delivering outstanding quality of care, satisfaction and community value at a reasonable cost,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance improvement and the 100 Top Hospitals program at Truven Health Analytics. “The majority of the 2015 award winners have produced year-to-year performance improvement, as well. This speaks to the consistent focus on excellence by the entire organization and the men and women who serve patients.”

The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:

  • 126,471 additional lives could be saved
  • 108,926 additional patients could  be complication-free
  • $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
  • The average patient stay would decrease by half a day
  • Episode-of-illness expense would be 2 percent lower than the peer average
