Two Mercy Health hospitals named to Truven 100 Top Hospitals

Cincinnati, OH (March 2, 2015) -- Two Mercy Health hospitals -- Mercy Health -- Anderson Hospital in suburban Cincinnati and Mercy Defiance Hospital in northwest Ohio -- have been named to the nation's 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics. 

Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital was named 100 Top Hospitals for the 11th time, the most of any Cincinnati-area hospital. Anderson Hospital was also one of just 17 hospitals in the country to earn the Everest Award this year. The Everest award honors hospitals that have achieved both the highest current performance and the fastest long-term improvement over five years. These latest honors come on top of Truven Heath Analytics naming Anderson Hospital one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals late last year.

Truven Health Analytics is a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. Its 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. The 100 Top Hospitals balanced scorecard measures overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.

Hospitals do not apply and winners do not pay to market this honor.

“Mercy Health sets itself apart by having a care team for whom healthcare is a vocation and that team delivers advanced, award-winning quality care with compassion,” said John Starcher, Mercy Health – Cincinnati president and CEO. “Time and time again, Truven Health Analytics has validated our approach by including our hospitals in the 100 Top Hospitals list 22 times so far, more than all other Cincinnati-area hospitals combined.”
