NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Thomson Reuters, a provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. NorthShore has been named a Top 100 Hospital 15 times, more times than any hospital in the United States.
“We are absolutely delighted to have achieved the milestone of being the only healthcare system in the country to receive the Top 100 Hospitals recognition a record 15 times,” said Mark Neaman, President and Chief Executive Officer, NorthShore University HealthSystem. “All NorthShore physicians and staff share in this award for focusing on the delivery of exceptional quality outcomes to the patients we are privileged to serve.”
The winners were identified through the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals®: National Benchmarks study. The study evaluated 2,914 short-term, acute care and non-federal U.S. hospitals in ten areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia.
