Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center has been named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health AnalyticsTM. The winning hospitals were announced in today’s edition of Modern Healthcare magazine. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. This is the second time Asante Rogue Regional has been recognized with this honor, with the other coming in 1994.

Truven is a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. If you recall, last year Truven named Asante a 15 Top Health System (the 2014 list will be announced next month).

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 that looks at:

  • 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

Here’s what Truven had to say about its 100 Top Hospitals:

“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. The majority of the 2014 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.”

Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president

Truven Health Analytics

For the 100 Top Hospitals® study, Truven Health researchers analyzed public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Hospital Compare website.

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

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