OhioHealth Ranks Among the Nation's 15 Top Health Systems
OhioHealth is recognized by Truven Health AnalyticsSM, formerly the healthcare business of Thomson Reuters, as one of the 15 Top Health Systems in America.
The Truven Health 15 Top Health Systems study uses objective statistical data from more than 300 organizations and singles out 15 hospital systems – in the categories of small, medium and large – that achieved superior clinical outcomes based on a composite score of eight measures of quality, patient perception of care, and efficiency.
In total, the top 15 systems saved more lives, made fewer patient safety errors and discharged patients sooner with better long-term outcomes – despite having treated sicker patients on average. Beyond excelling in clinical quality, the top 15 systems also provided patients with a better overall experience.
Among key findings in the study, those named to the 15 Top Health Systems list demonstrated:
- Better survival rates
- Lower 30-day mortality rates
- Fewer complications
- Shorter hospital stays
- Better patient safety and core measure adherence
OhioHealth Among Nation's 100 Top Hospitals. Again.
OhioHealth’s Riverside Methodist Hospital, Grant Medical Center and Dublin Methodist Hospital were recently recognized as three of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals for providing quality care by Truven Analytics.
Riverside and Grant, which both ranked in the “Teaching Hospitals” category, were also named two of just 17 Everest Award Winners. This is the second year in a row that Dublin Methodist has been ranked in the “Small Community Hospital” category.
OhioHealth hospitals have historically appeared among the ranks of the 100 Top Hospitals. Doctors Hospital was on the Top 100 list in 2010, 2011 and 2012 in the “Major Teaching Hospitals” category. In total, this is the 10th year that Riverside Methodist has been named to the list and the 4th time Grant has been named to the list.
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals study evaluates 2,922 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in 10 performance areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; 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. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor. Learn more about the study and its methodology.

Riverside and Grant – Everest Award Winners
In addition to being named 100 Top Hospitals, Riverside and Grant were also named 2 of only 17 hospitals nationally, and the only hospitals in Ohio, to be recognized with Everest Awards as part of the honors bestowed by Truven Analytics.
Winners of the 100 Top Hospitals Everest Award are selected from among the new 100 Top Hospitals award winners for setting national benchmarks for both long-term (three- to five-year) improvement and highest one-year performance on the study’s balanced scorecard. The national award and the Everest Award are based on a set of measures that reflect highly effective performance across the whole organization.

"A" Hospital Safety Scores Achieved from Leapfrog
All six eligible OhioHealth hospitals were honored with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. OhioHealth is the only health system in central Ohio to achieve this feat.
The Hospital Safety ScoreSM awards the A, B, C, D or F scores to U.S. hospitals based on 26 measures of public hospital safety data that represents a hospital’s capacity to prevent medical errors, injuries accidents and infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance nine-member Blue Ribbon Expert Panel on patient safety and is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families. See how hospitals in central Ohio compare.
OhioHealth Doctors Hospital has been named a 2013 Leapfrog Top Hospital. The Top Hospital designation is one of the most exclusive and competitive hospital quality awards in the country. Doctors Hospital is the only adult hospital in Ohio to receive the recognition.
The Leapfrog Hospital Survey is the toughest standard-bearer and provides the most complete picture of a hospital’s safety, quality, and resource use performance. Top Hospitals have lower infection rates, higher survival rates for high-risk procedures, decreased length of stay, and fewer readmissions.
