U.Va. among 100 top hospitals in the nation

The University's Medical Center has been named one of the top 100 hospitals in the country for the second year in a row by HCIA Inc. and The Health Network, in their seventh annual study, "100 Top Hospitals: Benchmarks for Success."

In this year's study, U.Va. is one of only 15 major teaching hospitals -- and one of only four that has an affiliated medical school -- among the highly rated group.

The HCIA/Health Network study identifies top performing hospitals based upon quality of care, efficiency of operations and the ability to sustain overall performance. The study analyzed hospitals throughout the country using empirical performance data from publicly available sources, to focus on statistical rather than anecdotal evidence, according to HCIA, a health-care information company based in Maryland.

Four other Virginia hospitals were selected for the top 100 group: Chippenham Medical Center in Richmond, Johnston-Willis Hospital in Chesterfield County, Inova Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax and Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church.

HCIA also recently announced that the U.Va. orthopedic department was one of the top 100 orthopedic services in the country.
