DENVER – February 29, 2016 – Rose Medical Center was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® for the ninth time by Truven Health Analytics,™ a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.

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.

“Rose was built on the philosophy of providing great care to all in need, and that vision continues to guide us,” said Kenneth Feiler, President & CEO of Rose Medical Center. “This distinction reaffirms our commitment to delivering the best possible care for each and every one of our patients, and we’re proud to be listed among distinguished facilities driven by that same sentiment. Our goal is to honor our commitment to our patients in the most efficient and responsible way.”

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 February 28, 2016, edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.

“The 2016 100 Top Hospitals award winners represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Truven Health Analytics. “Hospitals in three out of the five report groups actually reduced overall expense year over year, while improving patient outcomes – exactly the results that the entire industry hopes to attain.”

The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:
• More than 104,000 additional lives could be saved
• Nearly 48,400 additional patients could be complication free
• $2 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
• The average patient stay would decrease by half a day
