There are a ton of factors that go into making a top 100 Hospital list for hospitals all across the United States. Hospitals that routinely give the best performance as far as patient care have to rank great in all areas of criteria. i.e. great results from procedures, satisfaction of patients, and above average survival rate for patients (Reed & May, 2011). Aside from voting and having surveys conducted by CEOs, for the past five years, Health Grades has conducted surveys displaying the top 50 Hospitals in America and it seems to be working out from a standard criterion standpoint (Allgeyer, 2011). Out of the top 50 hospitals, having a terrific staff like effective doctors and nurses also plays a part in the top 20 hospitals in America’s rankings.
Saying of all that, the hospital that I chose to analyze in the top 20 list is John Hopkins Hospital, which is located in Baltimore, Maryland. This hospital stands out for one reason, because it had a stretch for 20 straight years of being voted the best hospital in America. No other hospital has ever been ranked the best for such a long period of time. On the top 50 list that I evaluated, John Hopkins Hospital ranked number…...

...After reviewing the hospital and health system, and analyzing its services and organizational structure, I think Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center is one of the top 100 hospitals because they are No. 1 among state and local hospitals, and placed in the top five nationally, according to a U.S. News & World Report survey. Additionally, they are ranked 'Best in West' for 23rd consecutive year in annual survey. The architecture of UCLA Medical Center is new and replacing their older facilities around the same area because it was suffered moderate interior structural damage. It was a disaster that led to several hospitals severely damaged and injured many people. This new hospital is named after the late President of the United States and Governor of California Ronald Reagan. There is a reason why they are the top hospitals in United States and that Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center is one of the top 3 that provides 15 specialties. These additional centers were added because of a “strong record of high performance … in one or more specialties,” according to the U.S. News Best Regional Hospitals website. Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center has research centers covering nearly all major specialties of medicine as well as dentistry and is the primary teaching hospital for the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

...What makes a hospital successful? In an article written for the website Nursezone.com, it states, “Top hospitals have developed and implemented a successful business and clinical strategies that allow them to balance their finances and patient care” (Larson, 2002). Pastor John A. Burden, a Seventh-day Adventist, founded Loma Linda University Medical Center on May 29, 1905 (“A Brief History Loma Linda University Health,” 2014). For more than one hundred years, Loma Linda University has dedicated itself to the teaching and ministry of Jesus Christ through service, research, healthcare, learning, and spiritual life. It was Pastor Burden’s wish to not only start a medical center, but train young Seventh-day Adventists to eventually become missionaries (“A Brief History Loma Linda University Health,” 2014). Today Loma Linda University School of Medicine is dedicated to training students by emphasizing the patient’s needs, and capitalizing on preventative care in efforts to slow down future disease. Their philosophy is to provide a Christian-like atmosphere, while providing students with a learning environment that offers excellent teachers and training facilities. Loma Linda University has chosen as its motto, “To Make Man Whole.” It seeks to restore man to wholeness, that he may more fully enjoy relationships with his fellowman and communion with God.

...WHAT MAKES A TOP 100 HOSPITAL? Anthony Bennett January 31, 2016 The Cleveland Clinic is a hospital located in Cleveland, Ohio It was founded in 1921 and is associated with Case Western Reserve University and also with the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. Cleveland Clinic has more than 1,400 beds on its main campus and 4,450 beds systemwide.

One reason I feel that the Cleveland Clinic is a top hospital is due to their expenditures and budgeting practices. Cleveland Clinic's total operating revenue in 2013 was $6.5 billion, and its operating income was $296 million. At the end of last year, Cleveland Clinic had 320 days cash on hand. It was also known to have $9.14 billion dollars in total patient revenue according to a report by Jamie Oh (Oh, 2011). These......

Top 100 Essay

...Top 100 Essay Upon examining the world, one will find many great people who have shaped the one we live in today. Despite the significance of them all, it is important to be able to narrow them down to a list of one hundred or so. From there, the true test is to be able to tell which person had a bigger effect on our state of being than the other. Starting with a list that has already been compiled, this essay will rank each historical figure by their impact on the world. (Please note that this list was compiled based on a western perspective.) Topping the list at #1 is Muhammad. As the Prophet of Islam, Muhammads, s.a.w, teachings have reached and inspired many societies and their people. His teachings also indicate the best way to think and therefore live. At #2 is Jesus Christ, whose place as the central figure of Christianity has impacted the lives of his believers, all 2 billion of them (give or take). His existence has lead to the many holidays and churches that occupy mainly, western society. At #3 is Gautama Buddha, who is the spiritual teacher and founder of Buddhism.

...What Makes an Army Leader Submission Field : 1. Clearly define the ethical problem. The ethical problem is if I should be honest and report this security breech. 2. Employ applicable laws and regulations. I would have to check my unit's internal Standard Operation Procedures to determine what the regulations are regarding proper disposal of classified documents. 3. Reflect on the ethical values and their ramifications. There are seven core Army values. I don't believe that all seven apply to this situation, but I will reflect on the ones that I think are relevant. The first Army value is "Loyalty". Is reporting SGT Day for his decision to cover up this discovery showing disloyalty to my unit? The second Army value is "Duty". I am to fulfill my obligations and refuse to take shortcuts that could undermine the integrity of those obligations. The third Army value is "Respect". Part of that Army value is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. Is reporting this breech of security showing a "distrust" in SFC Sharp and SGT Day? The fifth Army value is "Integrity". That means that I will not do or say anything that deceives others. If I agree with SGT Day, and do as he suggests, I am violating my personal beliefs to do what is right. 4. Consider other applicable moral principles. I can not violate my own personal moral principals. Whatever decision I make, I will have to live with. Is accepting SGT Day's suggestion being......

...worldLogos of the 100 Largest Companies in the World by Jeremia in UNCATEGORIZED * * * * The largest 100 companies in the world possess some of the most recognizable and distinctive logos around. These companies have built some of the foundations around which we live our lives: retail, automotive, financial services, telecommunications and energy, the staples of our daily lives. They employ millions of people around the globe and are used by millions every day. Whether we consciously acknowledge it or not, they continually build their brand through their advertisements and campaigns and reinforce the power of their logo on us as consumers. Gathered here are the logos of the top 100 largest companies and corporations in the world (using Fortune Magazine’s annual 500 ranking as a guideline). From the plain and simple logos like Berkshire Hathaway, Panasonic, and Sony, to the more colorful and playful logos of ArcelorMittal and Suez, they represent billions of dollars in annual revenues. You will notice the dominant use of reds, blues and oranges throughout their designs, aimed at reinforcing trust, excitement and energy in the minds of consumers. Since many of these companies are huge conglomerates with many subsidiaries in different industries, you may also notice that many have a more generic or broad appeal and are somewhat ambiguous in their nature. When dealing with multiple products that you wish to brand under one name, it allows flexibility and......
