15 Top Health Systems Based on Performance

Thomson Reuters has released its fourth annual ranking of the top 15 health systems in the U.S., based on an aggregation of  clinical quality and efficiency performance measures for each of their affiliated hospitals. Performance was assessed on mortality, complication, and patient safety indices, readmission rates, length of stay, and HCAHPS ratings on the patient experience. Median benchmarks in each performance category show how the top systems performed compared to others in their peer group.

The top performing systems in 3 ranges of operating expense size were:

Large systems [>$1.5 billion]

  • Banner Health [Phoenix AZ]
  • CareGroup Healthcare System [Boston MA]
  • Jefferson Health System [Radnor PA]
  • Memorial Hermann Healthcare System [Houston TX]
  • St. Vincent Health [Indianapolis IN]

Medium health systems [$750 million – $1.5 billion]

  • Baystate Health [ Springfield MA]
  • Geisinger Health System [Danville PA]
  • HCA Central & West Texas Division [Austin TX]
  • Mission Health System [Asheville NC]
  • Prime Healthcare Services [Ontario CA]

Small health systems [<$750 million]

  • Baptist Health [Montgomery AL]
  • Maury Regional Healthcare System [Columbia TN]
  • Poudre Valley Health System [Fort Collins CO]
  • Saint Joseph Regional Health System [Mishawaka IN]
