Sisters of Charity Health System in top 10 in the country for overall hospital care

The Sisters of Charity Health System has been recognized as one of the nation’s highest quality health systems for overall hospital care in a recently released study from CareChex, a division of Comparion Medical Analytics. The study analyzed data from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, evaluating hospital performance across various clinical processes, outcomes of care and patient satisfaction measures.

The health system finished in the top 10 for medical excellence, which measures composite performance across six areas of quality—process of care, mortality, complications, inpatient quality, patient safety and patient satisfaction.

Dr. Thane Forthman, president and CEO of Comparion, said, “Each of these organizations’ quality performance is in the top 10 percent of all health systems in the country and as such they should be applauded for attaining an exceptionally high level of patient care.”
