66 US hospitals with 'meritorious' surgical outcomes: American College of Surgeons

The American College of Surgeons has recognized 78 hospitals worldwide for achieving "meritorious outcomes" for adult inpatient and outpatient surgical care in 2021.

The group recognizes hospitals for surgical outcomes annually as part of its national surgical quality improvement program. The 78 hospitals recognized represent 10 percent of the 607 hospitals that were eligible, according to a Nov. 2 news release.

ACS' quality improvement program analyzes surgical outcomes data from participating hospitals and evaluates them against eight clinical areas: mortality; cardiac arrest and myocardial infarction; pneumonia; unplanned intubation; ventilator use for more than 48 hours; renal failure; surgical site infection; and urinary tract infection. Composite scores combining these potential adverse outcomes are then determined in either an "all cases" or "high risk" category. While the meritorious lists only evaluated performance in calendar year 2021, a hospital must have submitted at least one case in 2019, 2020 and 2021 to be eligible for consideration.
