CHI St. Vincent has been named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 15 Top Health Systems list.
This is the first time CHI St. Vincent has been recognized with this honor as one of the top performing health systems in the U.S. The annual list was published by Fortune.
Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, has identified the top health systems from a rigorous evaluation of 349 health systems and 3,206 hospitals that are members of health systems. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency and patient experience.
“Our healing ministry strives to provide our patients with the highest quality, compassionate care possible and we do that by focusing on what’s best for our patients and consistently working to improve healthcare outcomes,” said CHI St. Vincent CEO Chad Aduddell. “Recognition among such esteemed institutions is a true honor and validation of the hard work our healthcare professionals do for our communities each and every day.”
Merative, formerly IBM Watson Health, established the list to help identify top performance benchmarks that may help other healthcare organizations achieve consistent, balanced, and sustainable high performance. Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 15 Top Health Systems demonstrates CHI St. Vincent’s ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care.
As compared to their peer health systems, the organizations included on the Fortune/Merative 15 Top Health Systems list had better results on performance indicators intended to measure clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, and patient experience. These include lower inpatient mortality rates and fewer patient complications, considering patient severity; care that resulted in fewer healthcare-associated infections; and lower 30-day readmission rates.
