NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) was named one of the nation’s 10 Top Health Systems® by Thomson Reuters, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare. 

Thomson Reuters looked at data from 285 health systems nationwide and found that the top 10 outperformed their peers by saving more lives, causing fewer medical complications, making fewer medical errors, following recommended standards of care more closely and scoring better on patient satisfaction surveys. NorthShore is comprised of four hospitals: Evanston, Glenbrook, Highland Park and Skokie. 

“We are very pleased to have received this national recognition for our commitment to quality care and exceptional patient experiences. We congratulate our entire team of Physicians and Staff who share in this award,” said Mark Neaman, President and CEO of NorthShore. “NorthShore remains well positioned for a continued active leadership role in helping shape the future of healthcare, given its quality initiatives and comprehensive electronic medical records (EMR) usage. We believe this award is further validation of our capabilities.” 

“We have worked hard to define and deploy health care processes that are of the highest quality and greatest efficiency with a strong focus on patient safety,” said Ken Anderson, D.O., Chief Medical Quality Officer at NorthShore. “This is affirmation that the highest level of quality and safety is available at each NorthShore institution.”
