A number of Indiana hospitals are included on IBM Watson Health's 100 Top Hospitals list for 2019. The annual study evaluates hospitals from throughout the country on criteria including clinical quality, operational efficiency and patient satisfaction.

Those that make the top 100, according to IBM Watson Health, demonstrate top performance on patient care, through clinical measures, and how efficiently the hospital performs, through operational measures.

Medium Community Hospitals:

  • Dupont Hospital - Fort Wayne
