An annual ranking of the Top 100 hospitals in the country once again includes several from Indiana. The five-year trend analysis from Michigan-based Truven Health Analytics considers factors that affect overall organizational performance, including mortality rates, re-admission rates and inpatient expenses compared to peers.

The Indiana hospitals on the list are:

Major Teaching Hospital Category

  • Franciscan Health Indianapolis
  • Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie

Teaching Hospital Category

  • Parkview Regional Medical Center in Fort Wayne

Medium Community Hospital Category

  • Dupont Hospital in Fort Wayne
  • St. Vincent Carmel Hospital in Carmel

Small Community Hospital Category

  • Henry Community Health in New Castle
  • Parkview Huntington Hospital in Huntington

Parkview Health Chief Executive Officer Mike Packnett says "being named a 100 Top Hospital is a testament to the higher standard we hold ourselves to at Parkview. As healthcare delivery continues to evolve, we plan to stay focused on delivering excellent care to every person every day, both to improve patient outcomes and the overall health of our communities. It’s humbling to be among the other top hospitals in our nation that share the same values, compassion and commitment to service excellence that we practice here at Parkview."

Dupont Hospital CEO Aaron Garofola says "since we opened in 2001, our team members and medical staff have consistently delivered the highest levels of patient experience and quality care. Doing this year after year while maintaining the personal touch of a community hospital is a prime example of what we have always believed to be 'The Dupont Difference.'"

Truven Health says its 100 Top Hospitals ranking, which is in its ninth year, is "the most comprehensive, academically driven study of its kind."
