Joint Commission president Mark Chassin on Wednesday issued the agency’s first collective assessment of the best hospitals in the nation, naming 405 systems based on achieving a 95% compliance score for risk-adjusted process measures, such as care for patients with surgical care, heart failure, heart attack and childhood asthma.

And, Chassin criticized other highly popular “Best Hospitals” lists published annually, saying they use “flawed” methodologies.
