Health Leaders Media

In yet another annual list of best hospitals, the Joint Commission has named 620 acute care hospitals as “Top Performers on Key Quality Measures” for 2011. The list has grown by 215 hospitals over last year’s roster. But as in last year’s lineup, absent from the list were most hospitals that usually show up at the top of “best hospitals” lists, such as Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts General, Stanford University Medical Center, New York Presbyterian, Brigham and Women’s or any of the hospitals in the University of California system.
