Truven Health Analytics Names PIH Health Hospital - Whittier One of the Nation’s 100 Top Hospitals

PIH Health Hospital - Whittier has been named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® for the third consecutive year by Truven Health Analytics TM,  a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost of healthcare.

“We are honored to have received this award for the third consecutive year,” said PIH Health Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Rosalio Lopez MD. “We take great pride in providing the highest-quality healthcare to the patients we serve.”

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 across 11 key analytic measures such as patient care, operational efficiency and financial stability.

The study shows that if all hospitals in the United States performed at the level of this year’s winners:

  • 126,471 additional lives could be saved
  • $108,926 additional patients could be complication-free
  • $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved
  • The average patient stay would be decreased by half a day
  • Episode-of-illness expense would be two percent lower than the peer average
