Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center Named One of the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals for 2016
The only Oregon hospital to achieve this prestigious designation
For the third 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 state and among only 100 out of nearly 3,000 hospitals nationwide to achieve this mark of distinction.
“Our goal at Asante is to provide great care for our patients, and our continued recognition as part of this elite group of top hospitals tells me we are on track to reaching and sustaining that goal,” said Scott Kelly, Asante Rogue Regional CEO and executive vice president of Asante.
“I am proud to work with our staff, physicians and volunteers who show commitment, passion and willingness to do what is right for every patient, every day.”
Acute-care hospitals across the country were evaluated on quality and safety measures to identify the Truven 100 Top Hospitals. In 2016, Truven added a new, ranked metric to the study: stroke care and blood clot prevention in place of the acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care core measures. These updated core measures provided a new challenge to hospitals to raise the bar on basic standards of care for two additional groups of patients.
“Many of the 2016 100 Top Hospital award winners are breaking the mold for high performance,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Truven Health Analytics. “Hospitals in three out of the five hospital categories actually reduced overall expense year over year, while improving patient outcomes.”
In 2015, Asante Rogue Regional staff members cared for 17,302 inpatients; 47,112 emergency patients, 339 neonatal intensive care patients and delivered 1,718 babies.
The study projects that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:
- More than 165,000 additional lives could be saved
- Nearly 90,000 additional patients could be complication-free
- $5.4 billion 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 fourth time overall that Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center has received this national recognition. More information on this study and other 100 Top Hospitals is available at 100tophospitals.com.
