Immanuel Medical Center Among 100 Top Hospitals

Alegent Creighton Health Immanuel Medical Center, Omaha, NE, is among the 100 Top Hospitals identified by Truven Health Analytics’ (formerly Thomson Reuters) annual study of key performance measures from nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals. The study evaluates several measures of overall hospital performance, including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. Hospitals are compared to similar facilities in terms of size and teaching status. According to Truven, if all U.S. Hospitals performed at the same level as the Top 100, more than 164,000 additional lives could be saved; $6 billion could be saved; and the average patient stay would decrease nearly half a day.
