Susquehanna Health's Williamsport Regional Medical Center was rated one of the Top 100 Hospitals in the nation by the Hospital Value Index™. The 2010 Hospital Value Index Study™ conducted by Data Advantage, LLC, a healthcare information company, studied data from 4,500 U.S. hospitals comparing quality of care, patient safety, affordability and patient satisfaction to determine the overall value of care to patients. This national recognition is especially important in light of recent federal healthcare reform legislation and current trends in healthcare consumerism. Every indication points to the fact that the government will be judging hospitals on the very same measures analyzed in the Hospital Value Index study.
