Genesis Medical Centers Among Nation's HEALTHSTRONG Hospitals

Genesis Medical Centers in Davenport and Silvis have been named among the nation’s HEALTHSTRONG Hospitals by iVantage Health Analytics.

The study and announcement of 2015 HEALTHSTRONG Hospitals highlights top-performing hospitals as determined through the Hospital Strength INDEX.  The annual INDEX study is the industry’s most comprehensive rating system of hospitals and the results recognize top-performing hospitals.

Top-performing hospitals are measured across 62 performance metrics, including quality, patient outcomes, patient perspective, affordability and efficiency. Information and study findings can be found at

“Genesis places tremendous emphasis on safety, quality, performance and satisfaction,’’ said Doug Cropper, president and CEO, Genesis Health System.  “This recognition is an affirmation that our efforts are making a difference to the patients we serve.

“Genesis shares this recognition with our medical staff and every employee who touches the lives of our patients.’’

“iVantage seeks to help hospitals meet the demands of the new healthcare environment  by providing a new level of transparency into the internal and external metrics which drive more informed decision making,” said Araby Thornewill, president of iVantage Health Analytics. “As the industry continues to evolve toward value-based delivery models, the Hospital Strength INDEX provides a unique perspective into how hospitals are responding to unprecedented change as well as advancing toward the ultimate goal of higher quality care at lower cost.”
