About Truven Health Analytics 100 Top Hospitals

About the 100 Top Hospitals Program

Since 1993, the Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals program has used independent and objective research to guide hospital and health system performance. Organizations do not apply or pay for this honor, or pay to promote their award.

Award-winning hospitals and health systems prove that better care is possible and provide an example for other organizations to follow across the industry. The 100 Top Hospitals award winners demonstrate top performance on both how patients are cared for through clinical measures and how the hospital performs as an efficient business.

The 100 Top Hospitals program produces three studies each year:
100 Top Hospitals
50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals
15 Top Health Systems

The reputation, independence, and freedom from bias of the 100 Top Hospitals program are of critical importance to the company and will be vigorously protected.
