(Bryn Mawr, Pa. – April 18, 2012)— Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr and Paoli Hospitals were named to the 100 Top U.S. Hospitals in Thomson Reuters’ annual study ranking overall organizational performance. This is the fourth time Paoli has been named to the list, the third time for Bryn Mawr, and the first time for Lankenau. Bryn Mawr and Lankenau were recipients in the teaching hospitals category, and Paoli was a recipient in the medium community hospital category.
“Once again, a national organization has recognized the outstanding efforts of our physicians, nurses, clinical and non-clinical staff in providing a superior experience for our patients and community,” said Jack Lynch, president and CEO. “This speaks volumes about the quality of people and programs we have throughout Main Line Health and I congratulate everyone involved in this Top 100 achievement.”
The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® study evaluates performance in 10
areas, including mortality, medical 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.
Thomson Reuters' researchers evaluated 2,886 short-term, acute-care and non-federal hospitals using publicly available information including Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, as well as data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Hospitals do not apply and winners do not pay to market this honor.
