Parkview Signature Care

Here are the recent happenings for Parkview Signature Care Network.  

March 2, 2016 - Two Parkview Health hospitals named 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics  

Parkview Regional Medical Center and Parkview Huntington Hospital have been named two of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health AnalyticsTM, a leading provider of data-driven analytics and solutions to improve the cost and quality of healthcare.


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 measuring overall organizational performance across 11 key analytic measures including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The study has been conducted annually since 1993. This is the first time Parkview Regional Medical Center has been recognized and the third consecutive year Parkview Huntington Hospital has been recognized with this honor. Parkview Regional Medical Center was recognized in the teaching hospital category and Parkview Huntington in the small community hospital category.


“Driven by our mission, we continue investing in our patients and their future, while also working to transform how we deliver care in the present,” said Mike Packnett, president and CEO, Parkview Health. “We hold ourselves to a higher standard as healthcare delivery evolves, providing the excellence, innovation and value our patients seek in terms of convenience, compassion, service, cost and quality.

The study shows that if all hospitals in the U.S. performed at the level of this year's winners:
• More than 104,000 additional lives could be saved.
• Nearly 48,400 additional patients could be complication free.
• $2 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.
• The average patient stay would decrease by half a day.

“The 2016 100 Top Hospitals award winners represent the highest national standards in hospital care and management. They set the benchmarks for peers around the country to follow,” said Jean Chenoweth, senior vice president, Truven Health Analytics.  “Hospitals in three out of the five report groups actually reduced overall expense year over year, while improving patient outcomes – exactly the results that the entire industry hopes to attain.”


To conduct the 100 Top Hospitals study, Truven Health researchers evaluated close to 3,000 short-term, acute-care, nonfederal hospitals. 100 Top Hospitals researchers use risk-adjusted methodologies to analyze public information — Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) data, and core measures and patient satisfaction data from the CMS Hospital Compare reports. Hospitals do not apply, and winners do not pay to market this honor.
