Some 1,224 hospitals have earned the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures in The Joint Commission’s annual report, which was released Thursday. This number represents almost 37% of TJC-accredited hospitals, an 11% increase over last year’s numbers.

“The release of this report provides the opportunity to gauge progress in healthcare quality improvement, which we’ve been tracking over the past 12 years of this program,” said Mark Chassin, MD, president and CEO of The Joint Commission. “The collective performance of these accredited hospitals on individual accountability measures continues to steadily improve, as it has from the beginning of the program.”
