Four Market-based Organizations Added to Solucient List of Top Hospitals

Due to a database error in its original list of the 100 Top Hospitals for 2001, Solucient, a health care information company based in Evanston, Ill., has added 64 hospitals to the list. In the original list, published in December 2002, hospitals were included and ranked based solely on surgical cases. The revised list reflects both medical and surgical cases, which is consistent with the methodology Solucient has used in previous years. The market-based organizations that Solucient added to the list are:
  • Alegent Health Bergan Mercy Medical Center, Omaha, Neb.
  • St. Anthony Central Hospital, Denver, Colo.
  • St. Anthony North Hospital, Denver, Colo.
  • St. Joseph Medical Center, Tacoma, Wash.
They joined three market-based organizations included in the original list:
  • St. Clare Hospital, Lakewood, Wash.
  • St. Francis Hospital, Federal Way, Wash.
  • St. Joseph Medical Center, Reading, Pa.
Congratulations to these market-based organizations on this national recognition.
