Advisory Board congratulates members named as 'America's Best Hospitals'

91 Advisory Board member hospitals named to list

March 21, 2012

HealthGrades on Tuesday released its first-ever list of "America’s 100 Best Hospitals," adding 50 organizations to its annual list of 50 top-performers. The Advisory Board congratulates the 91 member hospitals named to the list.

To create the list, the independent health care ratings organization analyzed more than 150 million Medicare hospitalization records from fiscal years 1998 to 2010 for 26 procedures and diagnoses, including myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, stroke, total knee replacement, and pneumonia. To qualify for the top 100, hospitals had to perform in the top 5% across the 26 procedures for a minimum of four straight years.
