OhioHealth among the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals. Again.
Two of our hospitals – OhioHealth Doctors Hospital and OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital – have been named to the 2016 Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® list. OhioHealth hospitals were the only hospitals in central Ohio to rank among the 100 Top Hospitals this year.
Doctors Hospital is the only hospital in Ohio named in the “Major Teaching Hospitals” category. Meanwhile, Dublin Methodist Hospital is also the only hospital in central Ohio named to the “Small Community Hospitals” category.
OhioHealth hospitals have historically appeared among the ranks of Truven's 100 Top Hospitals. In total, Doctors Hospital has been named to the list six times since 2010 and Dublin Methodist has now been ranked five consecutive years.
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals study evaluated nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals in key performance areas including inpatient outcomes, process of care, extended outcomes, process efficiency, cost efficiency, financial health and patient experience. Hospitals do not apply for the award, and winners do not pay to market this honor.
