Unity Hospital Recognized as a Community Value Five-Star Hospital
Unity Hospital has been recognized for the value it provides to the community with the recent designation as a Community Value Five Star Provider by Cleverley + Associates.
This acknowledgement recognizes the value a facility provides to the community by measuring financial viability, facility reinvestments, maintenance of a low cost structure and high quality patient care at reasonable prices. Unity Hospital is part of a select group of hospitals that scored in the top 20 percentile among these performance areas.
“This designation shows that our efforts to provide quality health care for the community have been successful and that we are among the best in the nation,” said Warren Hern, President and CEO of Unity Health System.
The State of the Hospital Industry report, from which the Community Value Five Star facilities are selected, focuses on the United States acute-care hospital industry over a three-year time period.
For the tenth year, the 2013 State of the Hospital Industry reports an exclusive measure developed by Cleverley + Associates: the Community Value Index® (CVI). The CVI is a proprietary index created to offer a measure of the value that a hospital provides to its community. The book outlines the data used to calculate the CVI as well as provides a list of the Top 100 and all Five-Star (top quintile) hospitals.
