Genesis HealthCare System has been named as one of the nation’s top 100 hospitals by Thomson Reuters. Chief Executive Officer Matthew Perry says this award is widely recognized as the most prestigious hospital quality/performance list in the country. The Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals study evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses per discharge, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care, post-discharge mortality, readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction, (heart attack) heart failure, and pneumonia. The winning hospitals are being announced Monday in Modern Healthcare Magazine.
