INDIANAPOLIS – St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital and St.Vincent Carmel Hospital are being recognized for earning the 2009 Top 100 Hospitals designation by Thomson Reuters. Thomson Reuters performs the study annually to share new standards being set by the hospital industry, using expertise and innovative technology to provide intelligent information for businesses and professionals.
St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital earns the Top 100 recognition for the fourth time and the second consecutive year. The 770-bed acute care facility also received the Everest Award for the second year in a row for "exhibiting top current organization-wide performance as well as fastest organization-wide performance improvement." St.Vincent Carmel Hospital makes the Top 100 Hospital list for the first time in the medium-sized community hospitals category.
