Date:4/18/2009

Rutherford Hospital, Inc., a QHR management client since 1983, and Wooster Community Hospital, a QHR management client since 1994, were recently ranked among the top 100 hospitals in the United States in overall organizational performance by Thomson Reuters; the results of the healthcare company's 100 Top Hospitals® National Benchmarks Study were announced March 30.

Brentwood, Tenn. (PRWEB) April 18, 2009 -- Rutherford Hospital, Inc., a QHR management client since 1983, and Wooster Community Hospital, a QHR management client since 1994, were recently ranked among the top 100 hospitals in the United States in overall organizational performance by Thomson Reuters; the results of the healthcare company's 100 Top Hospitals® National Benchmarks Study were announced March 30. The study, which has been conducted annually since 1993, evaluates hospital performance in nine areas: mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average length of stay, expenses, profitability, cash-to-debt ratio, patient satisfaction and adherence to clinical standards of care.

"The 100 Top Hospitals® winners raised the bar again this year, delivering a higher level of reliable care and greater value for their communities and payers," said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president for performance improvement and 100 Top Hospitals® programs at Thomson Reuters.

"Rutherford Hospital, Inc. and Wooster Community Hospital continually excel in all aspects of hospital operations - from the financial to the clinical," said QHR CEO James L. Horrar. "These hospitals are a shining example of what can be accomplished through strong leadership and an organization-wide focus on excellence. I couldn't be more proud of our management teams and the achievements of their organizations."

In addition to being named a Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospital®, Rutherford Hospital was also recognized with a Thomson Reuters Everest Award for National Benchmarks. The Everest Award recognizes those hospitals among the 100 winners that deliver the greatest rate of improvement over a five-year period. Twenty-three Everest awards were presented this year.

"To say that this is good news during a challenging time for RHI and hospitals across the nation would certainly be an understatement," said David Bixler, Rutherford Hospital CEO. "This recognition is another affirmation of great progress our organization has made on a national level."

"We are pleased to again be recognized by Thomson Reuters as one of the 100 Top Hospitals® in the U.S." said Bill Sheron, CEO at Wooster Community Hospital. "This is a very prestigious award reflecting hospital performance improvement, and one which is totally data driven."
