Reuters 100 Top Hospitals(R) Performance Improvement Leaders

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Aurora Health Care facilities are among top U.S. hospitals identified by Thomson Reuter as having demonstrated the fastest, most consistent improvement over five consecutive years.

Aurora West Allis Medical Center and Aurora BayCare Medical Center of Green Bay were ranked in the Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals(R): Performance Improvement Leaders, 5th Edition in the medium community hospital category, while Aurora Medical Center in Two Rivers was listed under small community hospitals. The only other Wisconsin hospital named was Meriter Hospital in Madison, under the teaching hospitals category.

"It's an honor to have our Aurora facilities recognized by Thomson Reuters as top performers," stated Patrick Falvey, Ph.D., Aurora senior vice president and chief integration officer. "Providing the best outcomes for our patients remains a top priority that continues to receive national attention but this designation specifically recognizes the pace at which we have improved. The caregivers at these three medical centers reflect our culture of rapid adoption and quality improvement."
