Henderson Hospital demonstrated lower inpatient mortality rates,
with fewer readmissions and complications.

Henderson Hospital was identified as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® according to an independent quality analysis provided by PINC AITM, the technology and services brand of Premier, Inc., and reported by Fortune. It was ranked in the category of Top Large Community Hospitals.

To create the list, an objective, quantitative analysis of publicly available data was conducted to identify the top hospitals in the United States. The primary purpose of the PINC AITM 100 Top Hospitals® program is to inspire hospital and health system leaders to pursue higher performance and deliver added value to patients and communities. The program leverages transparent, nonbiased data to help inform strategies for sustained performance. Organizations do not apply to participate in the study, and award recipients do not pay to market their honor.

“This was a wonderful surprise,” said Sam Kaufman, CEO of Henderson Hospital. “Our entire team works tirelessly to provide top-quality care to our patients every shift, every day. It’s a collective effort across our medical staff and clinical teams, and I’m incredibly proud of them.”

Along with the Fortune and Premier’s PINC award, Henderson Hospital has also received 12 consecutive A grades from The Leapfrog Group, along with high profile awards from the American Heart Association, the American College of Emergency Physicians and The Joint Commission.


100 Top Hospitals® Program Performance

This year, based on comparisons between the study’s top performers and a peer group of similar hospitals, the analysis found that the top performers of the 100 Top Hospitals® program delivered better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. Compared to peer hospitals, this year’s top performers had:

• 39 percent fewer inpatient deaths than peer hospitals.

• 26.6 percent fewer patients with complications.

• 30.6 percent fewer healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).

• A 21.1 percent lower inpatient expense per discharge.

• 0.5-day shorter average length of stay.

• Better reported patient experience scores, with a top-box Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score of 73 percent versus 67 percent for peer hospitals.

“Hospitals and health systems continue to recognize the vital importance of performance improvement for high-quality patient care, proving value and enabling the innovations that drive healthcare forward,” said Leigh Anderson, Premier’s Chief Operating Officer and the leader of PINC AITM. “The transparent, non-biased and actionable data this study provides helps leaders make informed decisions for change and proves that Henderson Hospital excels across a range of core performance indicators, which can directly lead to significantly higher quality patient outcomes, with fewer readmissions and complications.”

About the Study

The PINC AITM 100 Top Hospitals® program focuses on short-term, acute care, non-federal U.S. hospitals that treat a broad spectrum of patients. Researchers evaluated 2,601 short-term, acute care, non-federal U.S. hospitals and health systems. All research was based on the following public data sets: Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Care Compare website.

Eligible hospitals are ranked for performance across 10 measures within five domains. Final rank is determined based on performance for all individual measures. To allow for fair comparison, hospitals are stratified and then ranked within five separate peer groups with a pre- determined number of high-performing hospitals: major teaching hospitals (15 facilities), teaching hospitals (25 facilities), large community hospitals (20 facilities), medium community hospitals (20 facilities), and small community hospitals (20 facilities).
