Associate Dean Publishes Annual Hospital Ranking in Georgia Business Magazine

The December issue of Georgia Trend featured its ranking of the state’s hospitals, authored by the Hull College of Business’s associate dean and professor, Mark Thompson.

Hospitals, providing a range of services and of similar size and mission, are ranked in the annual publication based on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data. Thompson has provided the ranking data and article for Georgia Trend since 2017.

“Healthcare organizations continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While hospital rankings offer useful benchmarking information, this year’s ranking reflects the effects of the pandemic and should not be used to compare with past years’ rankings,” Thompson wrote.

Georgia Trend groups hospitals into four categories: Teaching Hospitals (certified by the Association of American Medical Colleges Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems), Large Hospitals (250+ patient beds), Medium Hospitals (100 – 249 patient beds), and Small Hospitals (less than 100 patient beds).
