2 Sutter hospitals are among 100 best in the nation

Sutter Davis Hospital and Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento are two of the nation’s 100 top hospitals as selected by Truven Health Analytics based on their overall organizational performance.

The two Sutter hospitals were the only honorees in the Sacramento region; the only other hospital in Northern California to make the list is Shasta Regional Medical Center in Redding.

This is the fifth time and fourth year in a row that Sutter Davis Hospital has been recognized with this honor, and the fourth time and second consecutive year that Sutter Medical Center has received the award. The past two years, Sutter Medical Center also was named one of the nation’s 50 top cardiovascular hospitals by Truven.

The Truven Health 100 top hospitals study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard.

The scorecard measures hospital performance across 10 areas: mortality, inpatient complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care and post-discharge mortality and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and pneumonia.

The study has been conducted annually since 1993. Hospitals do not apply for the award, and winners do not pay to market this honor.

“We’re very pleased to receive this recognition for four consecutive years, because this shows we’re not just sitting on our laurels; rather, we’re continually striving to improve our services for our patients and the community as a whole,” said Janet Wagner, Sutter Davis Hospital’s chief executive officer.

In addition, Sutter Davis last year received the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the only performance excellence award presented by the president of the United States, which honors companies across every industry. Wagner and her leadership team will receive the award in person in Washington, D.C., later this spring.

Sutter Davis also received the Governor’s Award for Performance Excellence in 2013.
