Arlington’s own Virginia Hospital Center was named one of the top 100 hospitals in the country this week.
Truven Health Analytics, a healthcare analytics firm, chose the hospital based on faculty performance and quantitative research, according to a press release.
The study also named the hospital an Everest Award winner, which recognizes hospitals that have the highest one-year performance and the fastest long-term improvement over a period of five years.
Truven Health researchers evaluated 2,922 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals. The winning hospitals were announced in the February 25 edition of Modern Healthcare magazine.
