SACH Named a Top 100 Hospital

 LatestNews_Top100Hundred San Antonio Community Hospital in Upland, California, has been 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 healthcare. The award recognizes hospitals that have achieved excellence in clinical outcomes, patient safety, patient satisfaction, financial performance, and operational efficiency. 

"To be named one of the nation's top ranked hospitals means that we are succeeding in our 101-year-old mission of providing the highest quality of services for our community," said Steven C. Moreau, President and CEO of San Antonio Community Hospital. "This is a culmination of many years of hard work by our great physicians and staff who are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care." 

San Antonio Community Hospital is also among 23 winning hospitals recognized for delivering the fastest rate of improvement over a five-year period. These hospitals are the inaugural recipients of the 100 Top Hospitals: Everest Award for National Benchmarks. This marks the first time the 100 Top Hospitals national benchmarks have been integrated with data reflecting long-term performance trends to identify the top-performing hospitals that are improving at the fastest rate. 

"The boards, executives and physician leaders of the Everest award-winning hospitals developed long-term strategies and executed them with extraordinary skill to produce extraordinary results," said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for Performance Improvement and 100 Top Hospitals Programs at Thomson Reuters. "The Everest award winners are leaders and innovators and they are bringing great value to their communities."

To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Thomson Reuters researchers evaluated 3,000 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in nine areas: mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average length of stay, expenses, profitability, cash-to-debt ratio, patient satisfaction, and adherence to clinical standards of care. The winning hospitals can be found in the March 30 edition of Modern Healthcare magazine. More information on this study and other 100 Top Hospitals research is available at www.100tophospitals.com.
