The Lown Institute, a Brookline, Mass.-based nonpartisan think tank created the Lown Institute Hospitals Index to help hospitals better serve and support their communities. The Index shows how nearly 3,300 U.S. hospitals compare on 42 performance indicators. The measures fall under three categories:
Civic Leadership, which assesses a commitment to equity, inclusion and community health;
Value of Care, which measures use of unnecessary services; and
Patient Outcomes, which evaluates patient safety, satisfaction, and clinical outcomes.
Presbyterian received A or A+ grades on all three measures, scoring highest in the categories of inclusivity, patient safety and avoiding overuse measures.
