Union General Hospital made Thomson Healthcare's Top 100 of 2007 list under the category of "Small Community Hospitals". This is the second time Union General has been honored with that national designation - although the last time was in 1994. Modern Healthcare magazine partners with Thomson Healthcare each year to determine the list. Thomason Healthcare employs its own statisticians, physicians and hospital industry experts to determine criteria and uses only public Medicare data to determine its list.

To make the determination, the company considers:


  • Patient outcomes, including survival rates for all patients and low rates of surgical complications.

  • Patient safety, avoiding unwanted events like respiratory failure, infections, and unexpected deaths in low-risk diseases.

  • National treatment standards or core measures, which it defines as a set of basic care practices that all heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgery patients should receive.

  • Efficiency, determined by length of patient stay and average expense.

  • Financial stability, measured by the profit and cash-to-debt ratio.
