Lovelace Health System Named Among Top 15 Health Systems Nationwide
Lovelace Health System has been named to Truven Health Analytics’ 2016 list of the nation’s 15 Top Health Systems, an annual study that identifies the top systems in the United States based on balanced, system-wide clinical and administrative performance.
The rankings analyzed publicly available data on 338 health systems and 2,912 member hospitals to identify those with the highest overall achievement in five areas: inpatient outcomes, process of care, extended outcomes, efficiency and patient experience. Overall, systems honored on the list achieved higher survival rates and fewer errors at a lower overall treatment cost than non-winning health systems.
This is the first year Lovelace has been recognized as a Top 15 system, and it is the only system in New Mexico and the Southwest to make the list.
