Saline Hospital in Saline, Mi affiliated with St. Joseph Mercy Hospitals was just ranked in the Top 100 hospitals by Thomas Reuters Annual Report. They were awarded this in the Category of Small Community Hosptials.
I have visited Saline Hospital many times as I live in Saline and have 5 children. Enough said.
In one week I was there with a Broken arm, broken wrist and a broken thumb. Weird, huh? …and has never happened again. Living in a small community it is nice to be able to be there in 5 minutes and get the treatment we need.
According to The Thomas Reuters report, ”
If all Medicare inpatients received the same level of care as patients treated in the winning hospitals:
- More than 107,500 additional patients would survive each year.
- Nearly 132,000 patient complications would be avoided annually.
- Expenses would decline by $5.9 billion a year.
- The average patient stay would decrease by nearly half a day.
We are fortunate to live in an area where University of Michigan Hospitals were awarded top 100 for Teaching Hospitals and Saline Hospital for small Community hospitals.
