A member of PSI’s network partner, Sutter Medical Center, made it to Top 100 Teaching Hospitals and Top 100 Hospitals

A 40-year leader in secure healthcare data collection and management, Truvent Health Analytics named a member of the Sutter Health network, a PSI partner, to its most recent list of the top 100 hospitals for 2015.

Considered the foundation for Northern California’s largest health care system, Sutter Medical Center was singled out by Truven Health Analytics in the “major teaching hospitals” category for key indicators of organizational performance and outcomes, including:
  • Stable financial history
  • Efficient operations
  • Record of patient safety
  • Quality of both inpatient and outpatient care
  • Patient’s attitudes toward the level of care received
Sutter Medical Center’s inclusion on the latest installment of the “Top Hospitals” list marks the fifth time it has been selected for this honor. Hospitals don’t apply for this ranking, nor do they “buy” their way into this list as a marketing tactic.
Truven Health Analytics prides itself in being an independent source of industry data. It relies on sources such as public data, proprietary and peer-reviewed methodologies, and key indicators of organizational performance to arrive at an objective analysis of the country’s standout hospitals.
Notably, Sutter Medical Center distinguished itself from the 99 other hospitals across the major teaching, large community, medium community, and small community categories by earning the “Everest Award.” This pinnacle honor goes to those award recipients that have demonstrated both:
  • Highest performance levels at present
  • Fastest 5-year improvement across performance indicators
PSI provides pathology and anatomic pathology, cytopathology, second opinion requests, and other services to Sutter Health and other network’s family of hospitals, doctor’s offices, and specialty centers throughout the Bay Area. When the PSI team’s specialized services go above and beyond the expectations of partner physicians and staff, it contributes to the overall excellence noted by independent authorities like Truven. Furthermore, many of PSI’s renowned pathologists have served or continue to serve in academic or staff member capacities at Sutter Health’s sister organizations.

Together with partner organizations, PSI is proud to represent the “best practices” that are changing the industry for the better. Truven notes that if all Medicare inpatients were treated with the same level of care offered at Sutter Medical Center and other award-winning facilities on the list:
  • Almost 126,500 additional patients could be saved
  • Nearly 109,000 more people could live without complications
  • $1.8 billion could be saved on inpatient care-related costs
Sutter Medical Center was named in Top 100 Teaching Hospitals and Top 100 Hospitals, which is a demonstration of the real impact PSI partner organizations can have on transforming the way healthcare is delivered.
