Trinity recognized in top 20 percent of health systems nationwide for quality, efficiency

Trinity Regional Health System (TRHS) has been recognized in the top 20 percent of health systems nationwide in the most recent Truven Health Analytics' "100 Top Hospitals: 15 Top Health Systems survey." The annual survey published in the health industry publication, "Modern Healthcare" on April 15, identifies what are considered to be the country's 15 health systems setting the highest benchmarks on clinical quality, efficiency and patient satisfaction.

Sixty-five of the 328 health systems evaluated nationwide were identified in the top quintile. Trinity was recognized in the Small Health System category, which includes those health systems with less than $750 million in operating expenses.

"Being recognized in the top quintile means you're a high performer across the board, not just in a single service line, like cardiovascular disease. By visiting Trinity, a patient is more likely to have a better outcome, be more satisfied, receive care at a more reasonable cost and have less chance of a medical error than they would elsewhere," said Rick Seidler, President and CEO of UnityPoint – Health, of which TRHS is a part. "Quad-City residents have come to expect that kind of excellence from Trinity, and we strive to meet those expectations every single day."
