UPMC Hamot Ranks Among 100 Top Hospitals for Fifth Time

UPMC Hamot Ranks Among 100 Top Hospitals for Fifth Time

For the fifth time, Thomson Reuters has named UPMC Hamot a 100 Top Hospital!

On March 28, Thomson Reuters released its annual study identifying the 100 top U.S. hospitals based on their overall organizational performance. In addition to UPMC Hamot, just four other state hospitals achieved this designation: Bryn Mawr Hospital, Geisinger Medical Center, Paoli Hospital, and Robert Packer Hospital. UPMC Hamot is listed under the “teaching hospitals” category.

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® study evaluates performance in 10 areas: 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. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.

“I am incredibly proud of our organization for achieving this prestigious honor for a fifth time – it’s a truly remarkable accomplishment,” UPMC Hamot President and CEO John Malone said. “Our affiliation with UPMC will only enhance the high-quality care and services our employees already deliver to this community and region.”

"This year's 100 Top Hospitals award winners have delivered exemplary results, despite volatility from health care reform," said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Thomson Reuters. "The leadership teams at these organizations have dealt with enormous ambiguity, yet remained focused on mission and excellence across the hospital, which drove national benchmarks to new highs."

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Thomson Reuters researchers evaluated 2,914 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals. They used public information - Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.

If all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in the award-winning facilities:

• Nearly 116,000 additional patients would survive each year.

• More than 197,000 patient complications would be avoided annually.

• Expense per adjusted discharge would drop by $462.

• The average patient stay would decrease by half a day.

If the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater. For more information and to see the complete list of winners, visit 100tophospitals.com.

In March 2010, CCMH and UPMC Hamot entered into a clinical affiliation agreement through which the two health systems collaborate to improve the access and quality of health services to the residents of the area.
