Aurora news releases
St. Luke's named one of the top 50 hospitals in the United StatesThursday, April 04, 2002Milwaukee, Wis. The editors of AARP Modern Maturity Magazine have named St. Luke's Medical Center as one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation. St. Luke's is the only hospital in Wisconsin to appear on the list. Other hospitals named include Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, NYU Medical Center in New York and Georgetown University Hospital in Washington D.C.
The Top 50 list was compiled by Consumers' Checkbook, a nonprofit organization that compares acute care facilities. The hospital rankings are based on four attributes: physician ratings, mortality rates, accreditation scores and training.
"Offering patients quality care and the very latest technology is important to us," says St. Luke's Administrator Mark Wiener. "It's an honor to have the hard work, dedication and professionalism of our physicians and staff be recognized in this way."
"Not all hospitals are created equal," says Modern Maturity Editorial Director Hugh Delehanty. "When you need a hospital, it's good to know which ones set the standard in innovation and safety."
A complete listing of winners can be found in the May/June issue of AARP Modern Maturity Magazine.
St. Luke's Medical Center is part of Aurora Health Care, a community-owned Wisconsin health care provider and a nationally recognized leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora has care sites in 65 comminutes in eastern Wisconsin.
