Denver, CO, May 24, 2024 –(PR.com)– HCA Healthcare’s Continental Division, which includes HealthONE in Denver, CO and Wesley Healthcare in Wichita, KS was named among the top five large health systems in the nation according to Fortune and PINC AI’s 15 Top Health Systems.

The rankings are compiled by researchers from PINC AI, the technology platform for the healthcare company Premier. Researchers evaluated health systems across the U.S. using publicly available Medicare data. The analysis incorporated data from 2,778 hospitals within 355 health systems, focusing on eight performance indicators, such as complications, healthcare-associated infections and average length of stay. These indicators measured inpatient and extended care quality, operational efficiency and patient experience. The top-performing systems, categorized into large, medium and small groups, surpassed their peers across all eight measures.

“This recognition is a testament to the exceptional care our patients and communities receive from our hospitals,” said Chad Christianson, President and CEO of HCA Healthcare’s Continental Division. “Our colleagues and providers are dedicated to quality, excellence, and patient-centered care each day, and this repeated recognition is a culmination of that commitment.”
