UW Health physiciansMADISON - For the third time in four years, Madison's largest academic medical center has been named to the 2006 100 Top Hospitals list compiled by Solucient, the Evanston, Ill.-based health care information firm.
Each year, Solucient conducts studies of publicly reported hospital data and selects top performers from approximately 3,000 hospitals nationwide.
Top hospitals are selected based on strong performances in nine key areas, including:
  • Risk-adjusted patient safety
  • Complications and mortality
  • Average length of patient stay
  • Growth in patient volume
  • Profitability

"Being honored again by Solucient confirms that UW Hospital and Clinics has chosen the right areas and used our resources appropriately to achieve our mission," says Donna Sollenberger, president and CEO of UW Hospital and Clinics.


"As new standards of care and new approaches emerge, we have the infrastructure in place to adapt and maintain our high level of performance," Sollenberger added.


UW Hospital and Clinics was one of only five Wisconsin hospitals to appear on Solucient's 100 Top Hospitals list for 2006. In November, UW Hospital's cardiovascular program received similar recognition from Solucient. Read more
