Saint Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor Hospital (Ypsilanti, MI) and Froedtert Hospital (Milwaukee, WI) were both named among the nation’s top 100 hospitals by Fortune and IBM Watson Health. While some of the country’s best-known research and teaching institutions made the list, the aim of the Fortune and IBM Watson Health recognition is to also acknowledge the hard-won successes and steady performance of many lesser-known, yet high-performing, healthcare systems.

We also offer our congratulations to Columbus Regional Hospital, which was named as one of IBM Watson Health’s top 50 cardiovascular hospitals. To compile their list, IBM Watson Health researchers analyzed federal data and scored hospitals on numerous performance measures, such as risk-adjusted mortality and 30-day readmission rates. Hospitals named to the list saw higher inpatient survival rates, fewer complications, lower costs per case, and lower readmission rates. To read more about IBM Watson’s rankings, click the link below.
