Five Virginia hospitals has been listed as having the highest efficiency ranking by Virginia Health Information, a nonprofit organization that collects a wide range of information about health providers throughout the state.

Virginia Health Information assessed and ranked hospitals and nursing facilities based on five performance categories: charges, costs, productivity and utilization, financial viability and community support.

Because of significant differences in regional cost structure, the organization “leveled the playing field” by applying Medicare’s Wage-Price Index to accurately compare acute-care hospitals.

The hospitals with the highest efficiency ranking were:

• Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center in Mechanicsville      
• Riverside Walter Reed Hospital in Gloucester
• Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington
• Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital in Newport News
• Prince William Hospital in Manassas

The ranking is part of Virginia Health Information’s “2011 Industry Report: Virginia Hospital & Nursing Facilities,” which reports efficiency rankings, providers’ costs, profits and charity care.

Information from the report is also online at along with additional information on hospital quality of care and patient satisfaction information.
