Lakeview Medical Center of Rice Lake, part of Marshfield Clinic Health System, was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics, part of the IBM Watson HealthTM business. The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals evaluates clinical and operational performance in 11 areas, addressing: inpatient mortality, 30-day mortality rate, complications, core measures, 30-day risk-adjusted readmission rate, severity-adjusted average length of stay, mean emergency room throughput, inpatient expense per discharge, Medicare spend per beneficiary, adjusted operating profit margin and Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score (patient rating of overall hospital performance). The study has been conducted annually since 1993.
“I congratulate our colleagues at Lakeview Medical Center for their recognition of the outstanding work enriching lives through accessible, affordable, compassionate health care,” said Dr. Narayana Murali, chief clinical strategy officer, Marshfield Clinic Health System. “The healthcare provided at LMC is an example of how we function as an integrated health system, looking after the best interests of our patients and communities we serve.”
