Reid Named One of Nation's 100 Top Hospitals by Thomson Reuters

Date
2011-3-30

Reid Hospital & Health Care Services this week was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Thomson Reuters, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of health care.

The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals® study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and pneumonia. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. 

“It is gratifying to receive such a great honor that is solely based on solid independent data and comparisons to other hospitals,” said Craig Kinyon, Reid President/CEO. Kinyon said the award is a reflection of a longstanding commitment by Reid’s team to achieving excellence on behalf of the patients Reid serves.

“This comes on the heels of another national award for our heart surgery team,” Kinyon said. “I am very proud of the committed physicians, caregivers and support staff who continue to make Reid a regional and even national leader in quality of care. This is more evidence that patients can find exceptional care right here at Reid, right here in Richmond.”

William Black, M.D., Reid chief of staff, said the award shows and affirms the quality of care delivered at Reid. “It’s a reflection of the coordinated efforts from the medical staff, nursing personnel, administration and all Reid employees to give top quality care to our patients,” Dr. Black said.

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Thomson Reuters researchers evaluated 2,914 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals. They used public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor. 

The winning hospitals were announced in the March 28 edition of Modern Healthcare magazine. The survey put Reid in the top 3% nationally of almost 3,000 hospitals and in the top 2% of the medium community hospital category, which included more than 1,000 facilities. 

“This year’s 100 Top Hospitals award winners have delivered exemplary results, despite volatility from healthcare reform," said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president at Thomson Reuters.
