SAN ANTONIO, TX, July 6, 2022 ― Methodist Hospital, inclusive of data from Methodist Children’s Hospital, Methodist Hospital | Metropolitan, Methodist Hospital | Northeast, Methodist Hospital | Specialty and Transplant, and Methodist Hospital | Texsan, has been named among the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® list. Fortune and Merative (formerly IBM Watson Health) recognized Methodist Hospital as the only hospital in South Texas to receive this notable honor. The annual list was published by Fortune.

Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals demonstrates Methodist Healthcare’s ongoing commitment to prioritizing patient-centered care. According to Merative, as compared to similar hospitals, the hospitals included on the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list had better results on key clinical and operational performance indicators. These include survival rates, patient complications, healthcare-associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide readmission rates, length of stay, throughput in emergency departments, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from patients.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized by Fortune and Merative as one of the nation’s Top 100 Hospitals as it validates our teams’ devotion to delivering outstanding clinical outcomes,” commented Allen Harrison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Methodist Healthcare. “Importantly, to earn such high praise during a period marked by universal staffing shortages and political unrest, truly underscores that our community’s health is the highest priority for our physicians and staff. I couldn’t be prouder of their accomplishments.”

The Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals lists also incorporates a community health measure into its ranking process. For the community health measure, hospitals were surveyed across three components: 1) assessing hospital contributions to community health as a provider of critical services for community health and preventive care; 2) identifying ways that hospitals contribute to community health as a community partner teaming up with local organizations to implement critical programs; and 3) focusing on ways that hospitals promote community health through their practices as anchor institutions supporting local economic and social progress. The community health measure is weighted equally with other ranking measures.
