Members of the FaithSearch Partners team have worked with five of the medical systems included in the 2013 Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals report published last week.
“It’s a proud moment for our team and our clients,” said Ed Fry, president of FSP. “To have five faith-based hospitals recognized as industry-leading intuitions is truly gratifying.”
Before being awarded the title of one of the nation’s premier healthcare providers, hospitals are evaluated on measures of overall organizational performance, including patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability. The following five former clients were identified from nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals for demonstrating that high-quality patient outcomes can be achieved while improving efficiency (source: Truven Health Analytics):
- United Regional Health Care System (Wichita Falls, TX) – Top Teaching Hospital and Everest Award Winner
- Baptist St. Anthony’s Health System (Amarillo, TX) – Top Teaching Hospital
- Kettering Medical Center (Kettering, OH) – Top Teaching Hospital
- St. David’s Medical Center (Austin, TX) – Top Large Community Hospital
- St. David’s North Austin Medical Center (Austin, TX) – Top Large Community Hospital
“Studies have shown that the actions of the executive team are directly correlated with high performance,” said Fry. “There are clear differences in leadership within the hospitals who made the list and those who didn’t. Our job is to find those leaders—those CEOs, CMOs, CNOs, Presidents and Vice Presidents—equipped with the business and spiritual leadership skills to produce outstanding results across the board for our clients.”
