The Globe and Mail has published a list of the top 10 hospitals that offer the most intensive and cost-effective treatment for severe respiratory infections, according to the latest figures released by the Canadian Association of Healthcare Providers.
The rankings are based on the percentage of patients who are treated for respiratory infections that are diagnosed as COVID-19-related.
The list, released Wednesday, is based on data from the C.D. Howe Institute.
It’s a ranking of hospitals across Canada, and includes data from across the country, including the provinces, territories and the United States.
The hospitals that make the top five on the list are:Toronto, Ontario; Vancouver, British Columbia; Edmonton, Alberta; Calgary, Alberta and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The rankings are designed to compare the health and financial performance of the best hospitals to other hospitals across the globe, according the Canadian association.
“As a global leader in hospital care, the CCHPs is excited to see how the top ten hospitals on the C-Hs list have delivered exceptional care to patients across Canada,” said Craig Cavanagh, president and CEO of the CCHA.
“We are proud of the work our hospitals are doing to protect patients, ensure their quality of life, and support the Canadian economy and economy in general.”
The rankings were based on information gathered from C-CHPs data on the number of respiratory infections diagnosed and treated for each respiratory infection in the country over the last five years.
These data are compiled by a team of CCHP physicians from across Canada and around the world.
A hospital’s position on the ranking reflects the proportion of patients treated for COVID infections that were COVID positive, according a press release issued by the CHA.
This percentage is then determined by an analysis of the quality and effectiveness of the treatment that is offered by the hospital, and the financial and patient outcomes of the patients that receive it.
The top 10 most expensive hospitals are:Alberta, Alberta Health Services (ABHS); Toronto, Ontario (Toronto General Hospital); Vancouver, B.C. (Providence General Hospital)Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA); Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Health Authority; Ontario, Ontario Health Region (Ontario Health Region); and Alberta, Alberta Human Services (ALHSA).
The top five hospitals with the best outcomes for respiratory infection patients are:British Columbia, British Columbian Hospital (BCH); Nova Scotia, St. Michael’s Hospital (Nova Scotian Hospital); Calgary, Calgary Health Sciences Centre (CPSC); Toronto and Vancouver, Toronto General Hospital; and Edmonton, Edmonton Health Sciences and Technology (EHS&T).
