For more than 115 years, UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Hinsdale has provided superior healthcare with Christian compassion to residents in the western suburbs of Chicago. The 261-bed hospital is recognized as a leader in a wide range of medical fields, where university-level care and medical breakthroughs are achieved each day.
UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Hinsdale was identified as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® according to an independent quality analysis provided by PINC AI™ and reported by Fortune. This is the second time the hospital has been recognized with this honor, with the first recognition coming in 2017.
To create the list, an objective, quantitative analysis of publicly available data was conducted to identify the top hospitals in the United States. The primary purpose of the PINC AI™ 100 Top Hospitals® program is to inspire hospital and health system leaders to pursue higher performance and deliver added value to patients and communities. The program leverages transparent, nonbiased data to help inform strategies for sustained performance. Organizations do not apply to participate in the study, and award winners do not pay to market their honor.
"In our continuous pursuit of excellence, UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Hinsdale is honored to be recognized as one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals. This achievement reflects our unwavering commitment to providing exceptional healthcare to our community,” said Adam Maycock, President and CEO of UChicago Medicine AdventHealth Hinsdale and La Grange. “We owe this recognition to our dedicated team of healthcare professionals who work tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives we touch. Together, we continue to redefine the standard of care, ensuring that every patient's journey is one of hope, healing, and compassion."

100 Top Hospitals® program performance
This year, based on comparisons between the study winners and a peer group of similar hospitals that were not winners, the analysis found that the winners of the 100 Top Hospitals® program delivered better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. Compared to non-winning hospitals, this year’s winners had:
• 31 percent fewer deaths than non-winning hospitals.
• 9 percent fewer patients with complications.
• 39 percent fewer healthcare associated infections (HAIs).
• Nearly 20 percent lower inpatient expenses per discharge.
• 0.5-day shorter average length of stay.
• Better reported patient experience scores, with a top-box Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score of 77 percent versus 70 percent for non-winning hospitals.
“As hospitals continue to share the nation’s focus on changing healthcare for the better, hospitals
and health systems are recognizing the importance of identifying areas within their walls for
quality improvement,” said Leigh Anderson, Premier’s Chief Operating Officer and the leader of PINC AI™. “The transparent and nonbiased measures this study provides, helps leaders make informed decisions for change, and proves that UChicago Medicine AdventHealth excels across a range of core performance indicators, which can directly lead to significantly higher quality patient outcomes, with fewer readmissions and complications.”
The winning hospitals were announced in the September 21st edition of Fortune magazine.
