Maple Grove Hospital was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics, a provider of information 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 hospital performance across 10 areas: mortality, inpatient complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care, and post-discharge mortality and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia. This is the first time Maple Grove Hospital has been recognized with this top honor.
Maple Grove Hospital was recognized as a top Small Community Hospital.
For the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers analyzed 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.
“This significant achievement exemplifies what we are all about at Maple Grove Hospital in delivering exceptional quality of care, satisfaction, and community value at a reasonable cost,” states Andy Cochrane, Chief Executive Officer at Maple Grove Hospital. “This national award showcases a culture of excellence and performance improvement that encompasses every aspect of our organization — from housekeeping to patient care and everything in between.”
The winning hospitals were announced in the March 2014 edition of “Modern Healthcare” magazine. More information on this study and other 100 Top Hospitals research is available at 100tophospitals.com.
