SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY JAN 13, 2017

Sarasota Memorial Hospital was ranked America’s highest performing safety net hospital for total hip and knee replacements in 2016, according to an assessment by Modern Healthcare. SMH received the highest score in both clinical areas based on a review of inpatient data collected from all hospitals from 2012 to 2014 by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). Modern Healthcare analyzed a subset of that publicly reported data for the nation’s safety net hospitals (defined as those providing at least 0.1 percent of the nation’s charity care). It published the top five highest performers in the nation, with Sarasota Memorial ranked no. 1. According to the latest update on CMS’ Hospital Compare website (December 2016), Sarasota Memorial was listed among the top three hospitals for hip/knee surgery in Florida and among the top 50 in the nation for demonstrating the lowest (best) readmission rates. Hospital Compare’s analysis included166 hospitals in Florida and 3,473 hospitals nationwide. Sarasota Memorial also was the only hospital in Florida to earn CMS’ highest 5-Star rating for overall care.
