Memorial Named a Top 100 Hospital

Chattanooga, TN

Memorial Health Care System, Chattanooga, TN, is on the Thomson Reuters list of 100 Top Hospitals for 2012. The annual study evaluates hospitals on measures of overall performance, including patient care, operational efficiency, and financial stability. It compares hospitals only against similar facilities in terms of size and teaching status. If all hospitals performed at the same level as the 100 Top Hospitals award winners, more than 186,000 additional lives could be saved; approximately 56,000 additional patients could be complication-free; and more than $4.3 billion could be saved.
