IBM Watson Health lists top hospitals; did yours make list?

IBM Watson Health has released its annual list of the top 100 hospitals in the nation, a list that has been compiled for the past 25 years using "independent public data, risk-adjusted and peer-reviewed methodologies, and key performance metrics" to rate hospitals on patient satisfaction, efficiency, and financial stability. Hospitals are compared only against other hospitals that are similar in terms of size and teaching status.

Rural and small-town hospitals that made the list included Cedar City Hospital in Utah which topped the "Small Community Hospitals" category and made the list overall for the seventh time. It's in a town of 28,000.

Did your local hospital make the cut? Download the list free here through March 16; it will cost $75 after that.
