Of 3,000 Hospitals, Only 100 Shine
Advocate Condell Medical Center was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals and one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics.
“I am very proud that Advocate Condell Medical Center has been named a 100 Top Hospital by Truven Analytics,” said Dominica Tallarico, Advocate Condell president. “This prestigious recognition is a reflection of our commitment to excellence in safety, quality, and service for the people we are privileged to serve.

About the Award
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on a national balanced scorecard. The 100 Top Hospitals balanced scorecard measures hospital performance across 10 areas: mortality; inpatient complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; and post-discharge mortality and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, and pneumonia. The study has been conducted annually since 1993.
In addition, Condell received Truven’s “Everest Award,” which honors hospitals that have achieved both the highest current performance and the fastest long-term improvement over five years. Both the 100 Top Hospital and Everest Awards come on the heels of Condell being named a 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital last November.
The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:
- Nearly 165,000 additional lives could be saved
- Nearly 90,000 additional patients could be complication-free
- More than $5.4 billion could be saved
- The average patient stay would decrease by half a day
For the 100 Top Hospitals® study, Truven Health researchers analyzed public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website.
The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® study identifies hospitals and leadership teams that provide the highest level of value to their communities, based on nationally reported data.
Advocate Condell was named a 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospital in November, 2013. The Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study evaluates performance in key areas: risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted complications, core measures (a group of measures that assess process of care), percentage of coronary bypass patients with internal mammary artery use, 30-day mortality rates, 30-day readmission rates, severity-adjusted average length of stay, and wage- and severity-adjusted average cost. The study is celebrating its 15th year and has been conducted annually since 1999.
