Christiana excels again in national analysis

For the fourth time, Christiana Care Health System has been named among “the best of the best” by Truven Health Analytics™ with national recognition as one of the 100 Top Hospitals in the U.S. and as an Everest Award winner for the second consecutive year.

Christiana Care is again the only health system in the Delaware Valley region to earn these honors. Based on Truven’s independent analysis of the quality, safety and efficiency of hospital care, these recognitions demonstrate that Christiana Care Health System is delivering exceptional health care value through outstanding performance, a Christiana Care press release said.

In Truven’s 100 Top Hospitals list, Christiana Care is recognized as one of 15 major teaching hospitals representing “the highest national standards in hospital care and management.” The selected organizations lead the nation’s 3,000 hospitals in consistent, long-term excellence in care, efficiency and community value.

Christiana Care also is again one of only 17 hospitals across the nation to win the 100 Top Hospitals Everest Award, given to those select few hospitals among the winners with the greatest rate of improvement over five years. As in 2015, Truven Health Analytics distinguishes Christiana Care as one of the highest-performing hospitals in the U.S. that has set national benchmarks for the fastest long-term improvement.

“Earning these honors – particularly winning the Everest for two consecutive years – truly demonstrates the commitment of our extraordinary employees, leadership and volunteers to advancing The Christiana Care Way, our promise to the community we serve to be respectful, expert, caring partners in their health,” Janice E. Nevin, Christiana Care president and CEO, said in the release. “It is our commitment and our privilege to help our patients achieve optimal health by consistently improving to provide safe, effective care that produces superior outcomes.”

The award recognizes the 100 Top Hospitals that have achieved excellence in 11 areas, including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals is the most comprehensive, rigorous study of its kind, incorporating public data; proprietary, risk-adjusted and peer-reviewed methodologies; and key performance metrics to arrive at an objective balanced scorecard measuring current performance and long-term improvement, the release said.

Researchers based the 100 Top Hospitals on 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 the honor, the release said.
