Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center named a 100 Top Hospital in the nation for 2022

The only hospital in Oregon and Washington to achieve this honor.

Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center is honored to be named a top performing hospital in country for the ninth time. Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals demonstrates Asante’s ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care.

For the current year’s award, Merative (formerly IBM Watson Health) evaluated the 2020 metrics of 2,650 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals on clinical and operational performance indicators to compile their 100 top hospitals list.

“Looking back two years, knowing what our community, our patients and our employees were going through during the height of the pandemic makes this year’s award all the more meaningful,” said Mick Zdeblick, CEO of Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. “That was a year when living our Mission was never more critical — to deliver unwavering, compassionate, quality care to the people who live in the communities we serve.”

Merative compared survival rates, patient complications, health care associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide readmission rates, length of stay, inpatient expenses and patient ratings among hospitals of similar size.

Rankings also incorporated a community health component to assess how a hospital contributes to critical services and preventive care; community partnerships with local organizations to implement critical programs; and support of local economic and social progress.

“As a physician, I appreciate that this award includes metrics for community health-based equity in addition to the clinical data,” said Somnath Ghosh, MD, vice president of Medical Affairs at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. “This is one area of primary focus of work at Asante, to look at the health of our community as a whole and address priority needs.”

The Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list is determined using independent and objective research to analyze hospital performance. Organizations do not apply or pay for this honor or pay to promote their award. Award-winning hospitals and health systems serve as a model of excellence for the industry.
