The national experts who are responsible for accrediting US hospitals, the Joint Commission, has just released their list of 620 hospitals, Top Performers on Key Quality Measures. The 620 hospitals were recognized for providing “evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to be the best treatments for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, inpatient psychiatric services, stroke and venous thromboembolism.” Unfortunately, no CT hospitals earned a spot on the list. Among our surrounding states, New York had 16 hospitals on the list, Massachusetts had 10, and one Rhode Island hospital met the standards.
