Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (August 1, 2011)---Botsford Hospital has been ranked as one of the top 100 hospitals in the nation in terms of quality and value provided to the community according to a study of U.S. hospitals just released by a leading health care consulting firm.
Botsford was recognized as a top-ranked Community Value Provider in the State of the Hospital Industry –2011 Edition published by Cleverley +Associates based in Worthington, Ohio. The annual report assesses both financial strength and quality performance of hospitals and ranks the information through a Community Value Index using publicly available data including Medicare Cost Reports, Medicare Inpatient Claims, Medicare Outpatient Claims and 2009-2010 Hospital Compare data.
“We were honored that Botsford received both the Community Value 100 and Community Value Five-Star awards,” said Paul LaCasse, D.O., president and CEO of Botsford Health Care. “Our CVI scores tell us that our hard work in providing top quality and responsible care has paid off when our results are benchmarked against that of all other hospitals of similar size and teaching status.” The Community Value 100 award recognizes the top 100 hospitals while the Five Star Award is given to those scoring in the top 20 percent of their group; Botsford is ranked with other medium size teaching hospitals.
The Community Value Index assesses hospital performance in four key areas: financial viability and reinvestment in the facility, reasonable cost and charge structures and hospital quality indicators. The 2011 awards are based on 2009 hospital data.

The campus also houses an imaging center and a comprehensive care cancer center.
