San Luis Obispo Tribune

French Hospital Medical Center in San Luis Obispo was named earlier this month by Truven Health Analytics to its “100 Top Hospitals” list for 2015 in the category for mid-sized community hospitals nationwide.

Truven Health Analytics, formerly the health care division of Thomson Reuters, has produced the hospital ranking since 1993. To evaluate hospitals, Truven uses specific healthcare and business criteria: inpatient and post-hospitalization mortality rates, complications, patient safety, average length of stay, patient satisfaction, clinical standards of care, readmission rates for heart attacks and pneumonia, expenses and profitability, and Medicare payments.
