Dupont Hospital has been named one of the country's 100 Top Hospitals by Thomson Reuters, local hospital officials announced today.
Almost 3,000 hospitals nationwide were evaluated on 10 criteria, including mortality rates, medical complications rates, patient safety, patient satisfaction and profitability.
Dupont was one of only four hospitals in Indiana to earn the distinction and the only one in northeast Indiana. Also on the list are St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital, Indianapolis; Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center, Plymouth; and Major Hospital, Shelbyville.
Dupont Hospital is part of the Lutheran Health Network, which is owned by Community Health Systems Inc.
