Thomson Reuters Research Identifies Top U.S. Health Systems
Date:8/10/2009

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Reuters today released an unprecedented study identifying the top 10 U.S. health systems based on their hospitals' clinical performance. They are:

  • Advocate Health Care -- Oak Brook, IL
  • Catholic Healthcare Partners -- Cincinnati, OH
  • Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati -- Cincinnati, OH
  • HealthEast Care System -- Saint Paul, MN
  • Henry Ford Health System -- Detroit, MI
  • Kettering Health Network -- Dayton, OH
  • OhioHealth-- Columbus, OH
  • Prime Healthcare Services, Inc. -- Victorville, CA
  • Trinity Health -- Novi, MI
  • University Hospitals Health System -- Cleveland, OH
