Two area health systems named Top 15 in nation


Kettering Health Network and Mercy Health have been named two of the Top 15 health systems in the nation by the international business research firm Truven Health Analytics.

It’s the fifth appearance on the Top 15 list for the Dayton-based Kettering system, comprised of eight hospitals, including Kettering Medical Center, Fort Hamilton, Soin Medical Center and Grandview Medical Center.

Cincinnati-based Mercy Health has hospitals in Fairfield and Springfield.

Hospital systems were ranked based on such performance metrics as cost per episode, length of hospital stays and patient satisfaction scores. Winning health systems achieved higher survival rates and fewer errors at a lower overall treatment cost than non-winning health systems, according to Truven.

“Everything we do as a faith-based organization centers around how to provide the best care for our patients,” says Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health Network. “This recognition is because of our dedicated physicians, nurses, employees, and volunteers, who provide exceptional, compassionate care to every person who comes through our doors.”
