HCM again named to nation's top 100 hospitals

Hill Country Memorial last week was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics for the third consecutive year, putting it in the company of the top one percent of hospitals nationally.

Of more than 2,800 hospitals surveyed, Hill Country Memorial was one of 20 small community hospitals nationwide and one of 11 Texas hospitals that made the list.

For potential patients, this means that the same level of quality care found at some larger institutions can be found in the Hill Country, said HCM Chief Executive Officer Jayne Pope.

“Hill Country Memorial will continue to put quality health care and safety at the forefront every single day,” Pope said. “With every rating, review and quality measure, we strive to better this organization, and once again, our physicians and staff have proven their dedication to the health of this community.”

The Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals study recognizes hospitals’ performance across measures of patient satisfaction, average length of stay, patient safety, operating margin, readmission rates and other areas. The study has been conducted annually since 1993, and this is the fourth time Hill Country Memorial has been named to the 100 Top Hospitals list.
