CHI Memorial Once Again Named a 15 Top Health Systems™ by Fortune and PINC AI™

CHI Memorial has been identified for the third year in a row as one of the nation’s 15 Top Health Systems™ according to an independent quality analysis based on a scorecard provided by PINC AI™, the technology and services brand of Premier, Inc. (NASDAQ: PINC), and reported by Fortune.  CHI Memorial is the only health system in Tennessee to receive the 15 Top Health Systems recognition this year.

A total of 355 systems throughout the United States were evaluated using Medicare data that is publicly available. The research analysis incorporated data from every hospital within a system, and considered eight performance indicators - including inpatient mortality and average length of stay - that measure clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, and patient experience.  The top-ranking systems, divided into three groups—large, medium, and small—outperformed their peer systems on all eight measures. These were meaningful differences: rates of hospital-acquired infections and inpatient mortality, for example, were both 21% lower for winning systems than non-winning peers. 

If all health systems performed as their top-rated peers, the analysis found, there would be 220,000 fewer patient deaths and 196,000 fewer patients who suffer complications during their hospital stay. In addition, the typical patient would spend half a day less in the hospital and the costs of their care would be 2% less. Most of the winning systems have been recognized on this list before. CHI Memorial was also recognized as one of the 15 Top Health Systems in 2022 and 2023.

Health systems do not apply for the 15 Top Health Systems selection process, and winners do not pay to market their honor. Learn more about the 2024 15 Top Health Systems at
