100 Top Hospitals

About the Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals program

Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals award winners look for and find opportunities to improve long-term efficiency, financial stability and value to the community. And in doing so, they shine a light on a path forward for others to follow.

IBM Watson Health is dedicated to upholding the integrity of the 100 Top Hospitals program studies and results. The reputation, independence and freedom from bias of the 100 Top Hospitals program are of critical importance and will be vigorously protected. Read our complete statement of integrity.

Since 1993, the Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals program has used independent and objective research to help guide US hospital and health system performance. Organizations do not apply or pay for this honor, or pay to promote their award. 

Award-winning hospitals and health systems consistently demonstrate top performance on both how patients are cared for through clinical measures and how the hospital performs as an efficient business.

The 100 Top Hospitals program produces three studies each year:

100 Top Hospitals
50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals
15 Top Health Systems

If you are interested in taking your hospital or health system performance to the next level, Watson Health offers custom benchmark reports, based on our 100 Top Hospitals studies, that can provide in-depth analyses of your organization's performance.
