Shasta Regional named Top 100 Hospitals in U.S.
Redding, CA, March 7, 2014 — Shasta Regional Medical Center was just
named for the second year in a row one of the nation’s 100 Top hospitals
by Truven Health Analytics, based on several qualities of care metrics
and patient satisfaction. Truven Health Analytics, formerly Thomson Reuters,
is a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost
and quality of health care for more than 21 years.
The Truven Health Analytics 100 Top Hospitals study evaluates performance
in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average
patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence
to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission
rates for heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia. The study has been
conducted annually since 1993.
“This recognition – which we have received for the second
consecutive year – shows that we are successfully and consistently
achieving top quality results in patient care and satisfaction, said Cyndy
Gordon, Shasta Regional’s CEO. “We have accomplished this
award through the hard work, dedication and excellent patient care that
our physicians, nurses and staff provide.”
Shasta Regional was also named as one of the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals
in the U.S. for superior inpatient performance in cardiovascular services,
by Truven Health Analytics in 2013.
“This is an honor that our entire region can be proud of,”
said Dr. Marcia McCampbell, Chief Medical Officer at Shasta Regional.
“Our medical staff and employees strive to provide exceptional,
compassionate care to every patient, every day, and this recognition supports
that we are delivering on our promise.”
Only 10 California community hospitals made the 100 Top hospital list,
eight of which are owned by Prime Healthcare Services — the parent
company of Shasta Regional Medical Center.
