since 1993. This is thefourth year in a row that CVMC has been recognized with this honor. Dr James M. Lally, President &

every day", says Lally. "This award is a testimony to their
great work and the outstanding care that the staff provides."

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated
close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, non-federal hospitals. Risk-adjusted
methodologies were used to analyze public information — Medicare
cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and
core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare
& Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare reports. Hospitals do not
apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.
The winning hospitals were announced in the March 2, 2015, edition of
Modern Healthcare magazine.
"This year's 100 Top Hospitals represent the highest national
standards in hospital care and management today. They set the benchmarks
for peers around the country to follow — consistently delivering
outstanding quality of care, satisfaction and community value at a reasonable
cost," said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance
improvement and the 100 Top Hospitals program at Truven Health Analytics.
"The majority of the 2015 award winners have produced year-to-year
performance improvement, as well. This speaks to the consistent focus
on excellence by the entire organization and the men and women who serve
The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level
of this year's winners:
- 126,471 additional lives could be saved
- 108,926 additional patients could be complication-free
- $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
- The average patient stay would decrease by half a day
- Episode-of-illness expense would be 2 percent lower than the peer average
