PPMC Ranks Among 100 Top Hospitals

Truven-Health-AnalyticsFor the second consecutive year, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center was listed as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics, formerly the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters.

The study identifies the 100 Top Hospitals based on their overall organizational performance in 10 areas including mortality, patient safety, and patient satisfaction. Penn Presbyterian is one of only two in the state of Pennsylvania to be included in the new study. In October, Truven Health also named Penn Presbyterian one of the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in the nation. “Being listed among the top 100 hospitals is further proof of Penn Presbyterian’s positive impact to the community and our dedication to
providing the highest-quality patient care,” said Michele Volpe, executive director and CEO, PPMC. “This honor, in conjunction with our many other accomplishments over the last year are great reminders of the extraordinary faculty and staff who give so much of themselves here every day. We look forward to continuing to foster this culture of excellence and growth in the years to come.”
