AdventHealth Redmond was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Fortune and Merative.
This is the third year in a row that the hospital has been recognized with this accolade.
Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, has identified the top
hospitals from a rigorous evaluation of 2,650 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in the U.S.

Murrill, president and CEO of AdventHealth Redmond and the Southeast Region. “Earning this
recognition for the third year in a row is a testament to the dedication of our team. I’m thankful to work
alongside them as we fulfill our mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ.”
The 100 Top Hospitals list is broken down into 5 categories, including 15 top major teaching hospitals,
25 top teaching hospitals, 20 top large community hospitals, 20 top medium community hospitals and
20 top small community hospitals. AdventHealth Redmond was recognized as the number one top
teaching hospital. The hospital received 5 stars for clinical outcomes, operation efficiency, patient
experience and financial health.
Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals demonstrates AdventHealth Redmond’s
ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care. According to Merative, as compared to similar
hospitals, the hospitals included on the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list had better results on
key clinical and operational performance indicators. These include survival rates, patient complications,
health care associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide readmission rates, length
of stay, throughput in emergency departments, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from
The Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals lists also incorporates a community health measure into its
ranking process. For the community health measure, hospitals were surveyed across three
components: 1) assessing hospital contributions to community health as a provider of critical services
for community health and preventive care; 2) identifying ways that hospitals contribute to community
health as a community partner teaming up with local organizations to implement critical programs; and
3) focusing on ways that hospitals promote community health through their practices as anchor
institutions supporting local economic and social progress. The community health measure is weighted
equally with other ranking measures.
