Thomson Reuters has released its top 100 U.S. hospitals based on overall performance.

The hospitals were ranked on 10 key areas: mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care, post-discharge mortality and readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and pneumonia.

The study has been conducted annually since 1993.

Thomson Reuters researchers evaluated 2,886 short-term, acute-care, non-federal hospitals. They used public information — Medicare cost reports and Medicare provider analysis and review data, among other sources.

Hospitals do not apply to appear on the list or pay to market a spot on the list.
