CHI Memorial has been named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 15 Top Health Systems list. This is the first time CHI Memorial has been recognized with this honor as one of the top performing health systems in the U.S. The annual list was published by Fortune.
Officials said, "Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, has identified the top health systems from a rigorous evaluation of 349 health systems and 3,206 hospitals that are members of health systems. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency and patient experience. Merative, formerly IBM Watson Health, established the list to help identify top performance benchmarks that may help other healthcare organizations achieve consistent, balanced and sustainable high performance.
"CHI Memorial is a not-for-profit, faith-based healthcare organization dedicated to the healing ministry of the Church. Founded in 1952 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, CHI Memorial offers a continuum of care including preventative and primary, acute hospital care, as well as cardiac, cancer, orthopedic, imaging and a multitude of other services.
"Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 15 Top Health Systems demonstrates CHI Memorial’s ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care. As compared to their peer health systems, the organizations included on the Fortune/Merative 15 Top Health Systems list had better results on performance indicators intended to measure clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, and patient experience. These include lower inpatient mortality rates and fewer patient complications, considering patient severity, care that resulted in fewer healthcare-associated infections and lower 30-day readmission rates."
