100 Top Hospital

St. Cloud Hospital has been named a 100 Top Hospital® by Truven Health Analytics,TM for the 10th time, most recently in 2015. Only 14 hospitals nationally have won this award more times than St. Cloud Hospital.

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 scorecard measures overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures, including patient care outcomes, operational efficiency and financial stability.

Based on the results of this year’s study, if all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as those treated in the award-winning facilities:

  • Nearly 104,000 additional lives could be saved
  • Nearly 48,400 additional patients could be complication-free
  • More than $2 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
  • The typical patient could be released from the hospital one-half day sooner and would have two percent fewer expenses related to the complete episode of care than the median patient in the U.S.
  • Nearly 245,000 fewer discharged patients would be readmitted within 30 days

  • Patients would spend 10 minutes less in hospital emergency departments per visit
