By From page A10 | May 11, 2014

Sutter Health’s Sacramento Sierra Region — which includes Sutter Davis Hospital — has earned recognition as one of the nation’s 15 top health systems by Truven Health Analytics.

The study is part of the esteemed 100 Top Hospitals Program at Truven Health Analytics. It gathered data from more than 300 organizations and singled out 15 hospital systems that achieved superior clinical outcomes based on a composite score of eight measures of quality, patient perception of care, and efficiency.

Among the key findings were better survival rates, lower 30-day mortality rates, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and better patient safety than non-winning peer-group hospitals.

Sutter Health’s Sacramento Sierra Region has established a respectable track record when it comes to quality and safety of patient care. Both Sutter Davis Hospital and Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, were named 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics five and four times, respectively.

Truven also named Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, as one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals twice.

Additionally, Sutter Davis Hospital earned the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2013, the nation’s highest presidential honor for performance excellence.
