Becker’s Hospital Review has named the U-M Health System to its annual list of the “100 Great Hospitals in America.”
The list includes academic medical centers, community hospitals, and others that the publication says have demonstrated a commitment to the health of their communities, through unceasing self-improvement and growth.
“The hospitals included in this list have proven to be innovators for medical treatments, research, technology and care delivery. These hospitals are home to medical breakthroughs and act as anchors of health within their respective communities. Each of these hospitals has a distinct story to tell,” say the editors.
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team analyzed data from reputable sources including U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics’ 100 Top Hospitals, HealthGrades, Magnet Recognition by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the Studer Group and the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program to establish the 2013 list. Hospital nominations were also accepted and evaluated by the editorial team. Hospitals cannot pay to be included on this list.
