Georgia Hospital Rankings 2013

Georgia Trend’s 2013 hospital rankings divide 138 of the state’s hospitals into five separate categories: Teaching Hospitals, Large Hospitals (more than 400 beds), Medium-sized Hospitals (151-399 beds), Small Hospitals (fewer than 150 beds) and Critical Access Hospitals (rural community hospitals).

To determine the rankings, we chose to group hospitals of similar size and mission together and compare them with their peer institutions. 

All information used to compile the rankings relies on publicly available information on quality of care, patient satisfaction, mortality and readmission statistics and data on hospital-acquired infections and conditions. The information comes from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and is available at www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov. Data download date for our analysis is July 2013. Hospitals that have changed names or locations since then are noted with an *.

Information for determining bed number/hospital size is from the American Hospital Directory (www.ahd.com).

To come up with the rankings, Georgia Trend worked with researchers and healthcare professionals at WellStar Health System in Marietta under the direction of Marcia L. Delk, M.D., MBA, senior VP safety and chief quality officer. Kerri Franklin, executive director of quality informatics and improvement, was the chief researcher. 

The WellStar team accessed the databases and compiled the data mathematically; decisions on how to present the data were made by Georgia Trend. 

Where scores were identical we gave identical rankings, so some hospitals share a numerical spot on the list.
