Hot Springs Named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® List

CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs has been named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® list, recognizing the hospital as one of the top performing hospitals in the U.S. The annual list was published by Fortune.

“Being named one of the top 100 hospitals in the United States, and the only hospital in the state of Arkansas on the list, is an absolute honor and highlights our ministry’s ongoing commitment to patient-centered care,” said Hot Springs President Dr. Douglas Ross. “It also reaffirms what our patients and our communities across Southwest Arkansas already know. When they come through our doors, they can expect the highest quality, compassionate care.”

Compared to similar hospitals, Meritive found that the hospitals included on the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list had better results on key clinical and operational performance indicators. These include survival rates, patient complications, healthcare associated infections, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from patients.

Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, identified the top hospitals from a rigorous evaluation of 2,650 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in the U.S. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience and financial health. Merative, formerly IBM Watson Health, established the list to help identify best practices that may help other healthcare organizations achieve consistent, balanced and sustainable high performance.
