Again Named Two of Nation's 100 Top Hospitals
IBM Watson Health has named Kettering Medical Center and Sycamore Medical Center as two of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals. Formerly known as Truven Health Analytics 100 Top Hospitals, this study spotlights the top-performing hospitals in the U.S. based on a balanced scorecard of publicly available clinical, operational, and patient satisfaction metrics and data.
This is the 13th time that Kettering Medical Center has been recognized with this honor—the second highest number of recognitions for any hospital on the 100 Top Hospitals list. This year marks the 9th time that Sycamore Medical Center has received the award—the eighth highest number of recognitions for any hospital on the 100 Top Hospitals list.
The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of Kettering, Sycamore, and other winning hospitals:
- More than 102,000 additional lives could be saved in-hospital
- More than 43,000 additional patients could be complication free
- More than $4.4 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
- Approximately 200,000 fewer discharged patients would be readmitted within 30 days
