St. John Health Hospitals Honored as Nation's Top 15 Major Teaching Hospitals

WARREN, Mich., March 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Providence Hospital and St. John Hospital and Medical Center are recognized as two of the nation's top 15 major teaching hospitals by one of the country's leading sources of health care information and research.

The recognition from Thomson (formally Solucient), recognizes hospitals that achieve or exceed national benchmark scores for hospital-wide performance.

Providence and SJH&MC were two of only 15 hospitals nationally to be selected in the Major Teaching Hospital category of Thomson's 100 Top Hospitals list, based on objective statistical measurements. The study examined performance across five critical areas: clinical outcomes such as lower mortality rates, patient safety, operational efficiency, financial stability and growth. The study also determined that hospitals such as Providence and SJH&MC treated sicker patients requiring more complex care, yet had better patient outcomes and lower costs.

According to the Thomson study, the 100 Top Hospitals(R) have higher survival rates, keep more patients complication-free, and attract more patients -- all while maintaining financial stability. Thomson estimates that if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those in the 100 Top Hospitals winners:

-- More than 120,000 additional patients would survive each year

-- More than 138,000 patient complications would be avoided annually

-- Expenses would decline by an aggregate $6.2 billion a year

-- The average patient stay would decrease by more than half a day

In 2007, both Providence and SJH&MC received the Thomson Top 100 Cardiovascular Hospital Award.

Thomson, based in Evanston, Ill., provides strategic information to the healthcare industry. More information about the results of this study is available at

St. John Health is the largest provider of inpatient care in southeast Michigan and one of the largest employers in metro Detroit. St. John Health provides comprehensive prevention, primary care and advanced treatment programs with more than 125 medical centers and seven hospitals spanning five counties.
