Redmond Medical top 100 Hospital in Value Redmond Regional Medical Center was listed as one of the top 100 Hospitals on the Best in Value 2009-10 by Data Advantage, LLC. The national study was the first and only one done for U.S. hospitals and the value of care they provide. The hospitals in the Top 100 list represent nearly every state in the U.S. The states with the most hospitals achieving Top 100 Best in Value recognition were: New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Alabama and North Carolina. These results are part of the findings from the 2009-2010 Hospital Value Index study, an analysis of the value of care provided at more than 4,500 U.S. hospitals. As part of the release, Data Advantage is inviting hospitals and healthcare leaders to participate in the Voices of Value Summit, which will take place in Chicago December 7-9. `These are the hospitals that set the bar for the nation when it comes to value. If every hospital performed at the level of the Top 100, we found that more than $60 billion per year could be saved,` said Hal Andrews, CEO of Data Advantage. `The Hospital Value Index winners are a geographically diverse group of hospitals that have a proven ability to deliver high value care to their communities and represent a model of care that other U.S. hospitals should look to,` added Andrews. `As legislators consider health reform, we believe that it will be increasingly important to recognize and reward those hospitals that deliver outstanding value.` www.coosavalleynews.com
