Miami Valley Hospital Earns a Spot on U.S. News & World Report's List of Best Hospitals
July 12, 2007 – Miami Valley Hospital has been ranked as one of America's Best Hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report's 18th annual survey of leading healthcare institutions. Only 173 hospitals out of 5,462 in the country made the list. Miami Valley is recognized in two specialty areas, respiratory disorders and ear, nose and throat.
“We are extremely pleased with Miami Valley’s ranking in the latest U.S. News & World Report ‘America’s Best Hospitals’ survey,” said Mary Boosalis President and CEO of Maim Valley Hospital. “Throughout our organization, we are committed to putting patients first and providing the best care possible. The strength of Miami Valley’s U.S. News & World Report rankings in theses two specialties validates our dedication to clinical excellence.”
U.S. News & World Reports rates hospitals in 16 specialties. To be considered at all on the list, a hospital had to first satisfy at least one of three requirements: membership in the Council of Teaching Hospitals, medical school affiliation, or availability of at least six out of13 key technology-related services. This year less than one-third of all hospitals satisfied these criteria.
For consideration in a specialty, a hospital had to perform a minimum number of specified procedures on Medicare patients during 2003, 2004, nd 2005 or the facility had to be named among the best in the specialty by at least one physician in the latest three annual surveys.
Hospitals making it this far received a numerical assessment. The U.S. News score equally weighs three elements: reputation, death rate, and care-related factors such as nursing and patient services.
