Memorial Hermann receives teaching hospitals category award
Six Memorial Hermann hospitals recently were named among the top 100 in the nation for 2011 by Thomson Reuters.
The Thomson Reuters study evaluated hospitals in 10 areas: mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care, post-discharge mortality and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and pneumonia.
Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital, Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital and Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital were awarded in the teaching hospitals category.
Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital was recognized in the medium community hospitals category for the second year in a row. For the first time, Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital earned recognition in the small community hospitals category.
“Memorial Hermann is gratified that six of our hospitals were rated by Thomson Reuters to be among the top 100 U.S. hospitals in 2011,” said Dr. Michael Shabot, chief medical officer for Memorial Hermann, according to a press release. “We want only the best for our patients and this recognition indicates we are delivering it.”
