Scripps hospital in La Jolla named in the top 100 for teaching

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Officials with Scripps Health said Wednesday that Scripps Green Hospital of La Jolla was named this week as one of the top teaching hospitals in the United States.

The facility was the only one in San Diego to appear in rankings of the top 100 hospitals by Thomson Reuters, a provider of health care information.

It's the fourth time Scripps Green Hospital has been on the list.

"Our graduate medical education program is based on a solid foundation of patient-focused care and research," said Robin Brown, the hospital's CEO.

"This prestigious distinction underscores that commitment to excellence and serving the health care needs of San Diego."

Thomson Reuters evaluated more than 2,900 hospitals in mortality, medical complications, patient safety, length of stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards of care, post-discharge mortality, and readmission rates for heart attacks, heart failure and pneumonia.
