Mercy Hospital Clermont, along with the Anderson Mercy Hospital, have been ranked in the top 100 hospitals in the country by health care industry watchdog Solucient.
The two hospitals were both ranked in the medium hospital category, which contained 20 of the top hospitals nation wide.
“The rankings are based on a comprehensive study of each hospital’s performance,” said Mercy Clermont public relations manager Pete Gemmer. “It’s really broken down into four primary categories, involving quality of patient care, operational proficiency, financial performance and adaptation to the environment. This is the second time we’ve appeared in the 100 Top Hospitals list, with the previous time being in 2003. We’ve also been identified as a performance improvement leader by Solucient, which is a separate list.”
