Saint Mary’s Hospital Ranked Among the Top 100 Hospitals for Community Value

WATERBURY, Conn. (September 30, 2016) –Saint Mary’s Hospital has been ranked among the best 100 hospitals in the nation in terms of the value it provides to the community by Cleverley + Associates, a leading healthcare financial consulting firm based in Columbus, OH. This is the fourth consecutive year that Saint Mary’s has achieved this recognition based its performance in several key areas:

  • Financial viability and plant reinvestment
  • Hospital cost structure
  • Hospital charge structure
  • Hospital quality performance

five star award 2016Saint Mary’s scored in the top 20 percent of all hospitals in a national comparison group to receive the 2016 Community Value Five Star® Award and was among a smaller subset to receive the 2016 Community Value 100® Award, making it one the highest scoring facilities in the country.

“These achievements highlight the exceptional care and outstanding clinical quality we provide to our patients at Saint Mary’s every day,” said Chad Wable, FACHE, President, Saint Mary’s Hospital. “We are pleased to offer tremendous value to our patients and community as a leading healthcare provider in Greater Waterbury, and a member of Trinity Health – New England.”

Cleverley + Associates released the findings as part of its new publication: State of the Hospital Industry – 2016 Edition. 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 U.S. acute-care hospital industry over a three-year time period (2012-2014).

Communtiy Value 100For 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.

“The topic of hospital value is increasingly being discussed. Issues of pricing and community benefit have been well-publicized but little has been offered to measure the broad scope of value,” said James Cleverley, co-author of the report. “In response, the Community Value Index® was created to provide an assessment of a hospital’s performance in four areas: financial strength and reinvestment, cost of care, pricing and quality. Fundamentally, the CVI suggests that a hospital provides value to the community when it is financially viable, is appropriately reinvesting back into the facility, maintains a low cost structure, has reasonable charges, and provides high quality care to patients.”
