Truven Top 100 Hospital

Hill Country Memorial Hospital ne of the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals

In 2016 Hill Country Memorial was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals for the fifth consecutive year by Truven Health Analytics, a leading provider of data-driven analytics to improve the cost and quality of health care.

The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals that provide the highest value to their communities based on a national scorecard that measures performance across 11 measures including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability.

Receiving this recognition means that HCM’s clinical staff, employees, volunteers and leaders continue to meet the highest national benchmarks in the U.S. in terms of patient care, patient satisfaction and financial health.

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated more than 2,700 short-term, acute-care nonfederal hospitals. Hospitals do not apply, and awardees do not pay for this honor.

The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of top 100 hospitals:

  • More than 104,000 inpatient lives could be saved
  • Nearly 48,400 additional patients could be complication-free
  • $2 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
  • The average patient stay would decrease by half a day
