Winner of the 2011 Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals Award

Mercy Health – Fairfield Hospital is a proud recipient of the 2011 Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals Award. The award names 100 hospitals that achieve the highest national score based on the hospital's combined rank on nine separate measures of performance that affect patients and the community.

In 2010, Fairfield Hospital was named one of the top 50 hospitals in the U.S. for cardio care. In addition to attaining the top 50 of more than 1,000 hospitals, Mercy Hospital Fairfield also ranked in the top 10 of community hospitals.

"The 100 Top Hospitals award winners have delivered exemplary results, despite volatility from healthcare 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."

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfactions, adherence to clinical standards of care, post-discharge mortality, readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and pneumonia. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.

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.
