For Second Consecutive Year New York Hospital Queens Named 100 Top Hospital Performance Improvement Leader
Date:8/13/2008

FLUSHING, N.Y., Aug. 13, /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For a second year in a row, New York Hospital Queens has been selected as one of the top 100 performance improvement leaders among major teaching hospitals in the United States according to a national study released Monday by Thomson Reuters. New York Hospital Queens is the only hospital in Queens, and one of only two hospitals in New York City to make the list of performance improvement leaders.

New York Hospital Queens received recognition as one of 100 U.S. hospitals that have demonstrated the fastest, most consistent hospital-wide improvement over five consecutive years. The study to benchmark the best performers is managed by Thomson Reuters, a healthcare information company that studies outcomes data and trends. The company shares the data so that all hospitals can use it to improve their own performance. The 2007 study used publicly available Medicare cost reports, and Medicare outpatient and outcomes data compiled from 2002 - 2006.

"It is an honor to be recognized by an independent organization for our teamwork approach to quality, safety and satisfaction that is producing results for our patients," said Stephen S. Mills, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We were one of only eight hospitals in New York State to be named on this list-- out of more than 2,800 hospitals nationwide. We are very proud of this accomplishment."

The Thomson 100 Top Hospitals(R) Performance Improvement Leaders study sets national benchmarks for the rate and consistency of improvement in clinical outcomes, safety, hospital efficiency, financial stability and growth. The study reviews all U.S. hospitals licensed to treat Medicare patients. Eight performance measures are examined at each hospital: risk-adjusted mortality and complications, average length of stay, expenses, profitability, cash-to-debt ratio, growth in patient volume, and risk-adjusted patient safety index.

New York Hospital Queens was selected as a result of the following gains over the course of the study:

-- Decreased patient deaths, complications, and adverse safety events

-- Decreased patients length of stay by nearly a day, despite an increase in treating more seriously ill patients (this also provides a financial benefit to patients)

-- Financial stability and healthy management of hospital expenses

New York Hospital Queens, located in the heart of Queens in Flushing, NY, is a 439-bed acute, tertiary care facility. The hospital is a member of the New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System and is an affiliate of Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
