Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center Named One of the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals for 2015
The only Oregon hospital to achieve this prestigious designation.
For the second year in a row, Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center has been named a 100 Top Hospital® by Truven Health Analytics™, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the quality and cost of health care. Asante Rogue Regional is the only hospital in the Pacific Northwest to achieve the mark of distinction.
The list of Truven 100 Top Hospitals is identified from a total of nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals. The study looks at hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard that measures organizational performance across 11 key measures including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability.
“This national recognition speaks volumes about the dedication of our nurses, physicians, volunteers, and entire staff to do what is right for our patients every day,” says Scott Kelly, Asante Rogue Regional CEO and executive vice president of Asante. “It’s an honor to work with a team that is committed to patient safety and exceptional quality of care. I want each and every team member to know I appreciate their efforts every single day that make us an exceptional organization.”
In 2014, hospital staff cared for more than 15,600 inpatients; 43,840 emergency patients, 310 neonatal intensive care patients, and delivered 1,516 babies.
“This year’s 100 Top Hospitals represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management today,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance improvement and the 100 Top Hospitals program at Truven Health Analytics. “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 study projects 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
The study has been conducted annually since 1993, and this is the third time that Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center has received this national recognition. More information on this study and other 100 Top Hospitals research is available at 100tophospitals.com.
