Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital has been named to the Fortune/IBM Watson Health 100 Top Hospitals list, according to a news release from the hospital.

Published annually by Fortune Magazine, the list evaluated nearly 2,700 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals throughout the country to recognize “excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience and financial health.”

Selected hospitals had better results on specific performance indicators such as survival rates, patient complications, health care associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide re-admission rates, length of stay, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from patients and more, according to the release.

New to this year’s list was a factor that also took into account a hospital’s contributions to community health through practices such as providing critical services and preventive care, contributing as a community partner by teaming up with local organizations, and how they supported economic and social progress.

“(This honor) is a testament of our staff providing unparalleled safety, quality, service and innovation,” Houston Methodist Sugar Land regional senior vice president and CEO Chris Siebenaler said. “The opportunity to work as a team to care and serve our community to achieve this honor is truly a privilege.”
