For the tenth consecutive year, Mercy Medical Center has been recognized as a top-ranked Community Value Provider by Cleverley + Associates (Columbus, OH), a leading healthcare financial consulting firm specializing in operational benchmarking and performance enhancement strategies. Mercy’s designation is noted in the independent organization’s recent publication: State of the Hospital Industry - 2016 Edition.
“Mercy Medical Center’s longstanding reputation for delivering high quality care at a reasonable cost has once again been independently confirmed with the presentation of both the Community Value 100® and Community Value Five Star® Awards. We are proud to be identified among the nation’s highest scoring facilities in measures of quality of care and costs for the tenth year in a row,” said Scott Wolf, D.O., MPH, FACP, President, Mercy Medical Center and Sisters of Providence Health System. "These awards are further validation that Mercy Medical Center successfully meets those challenges.”
Written by William O. Cleverley, Ph.D., a noted expert in healthcare finance, the State of the Hospital Industry reports selected measures of hospital financial performance and discusses the critical factors that lie behind them. The publication focuses on the US acute-care hospital industry over a three-year period (2012-2014).
For the thirteenth year, the 2016 State of the Hospital Industry reports an exclusive measure developed by Cleverley + Associates: the Community Value Index® (CVI). The CVI is a proprietary index created to offer a measure of the value that a hospital provides to its community. The book outlines the data used to calculate the CVI as well as provides a list of the Top 100 and all Five-Star (top quintile) hospitals.
