Medical Center Ranked Among Top 10 in Nation for Quality Care 

 

Based on results of a study commissioned by the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), The Ohio State University Medical Center is one of 10 academic medical centers in the nation delivering the highest quality of care. As a result, Ohio State Medical Center has received the 2011 UHC Quality Leadership Award.

The Quality Leadership Award recognizes academic medical centers that demonstrate excellence in delivering high-quality care. Of the 100 academic medical centers and health systems across the nation included in the UHC study, OSU Medical Center ranked among the 10 best in the country.

The study, using the Institute of Medicine's six domains of health care quality-- mortality, effectiveness, safety, equity, patient centeredness, and efficiency, identifies and evaluates the structures and processes associated with high performance in quality and safety across a broad spectrum of patient care activity.

UHC's Quality & Accountability Study was designed to help academic medical centers identify structures and processes associated with high performance in quality and safety across a broad spectrum of patient care activity.

Other academic medical centers and health systems that placed in the top 10 include University of Colorado Hospital, University of Kansas Hospital Authority, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, UC San Diego Health System, Denver Health, University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics, Beaumont Health System (Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak) and Emory Healthcare.
