Thomson Reuters names University Hospitals One of the Top 10 Hospital Systems in United States

In an unprecedented study of all 252 health systems in the U.S., University Hospitals stands out as one of the best in the nation for providing superior quality care.

Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of trusted business and news information, concluded that the top 10 health systems and their hospitals provide their patients with better medical outcomes, fewer complications, greater safety standards and shorter hospital stays

The study is based on five quality metrics: patient survival, medical complications, patient safety, average length of stay and following standards of care published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

UH and the other top-ten health systems outperformed their peers by a wide margin by providing better care, saving more lives, and having fewer patient complications.

* University Hospitals is the clinical partner of Case Western Reserve Department of Medicine.
