July 10, 2020

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – For the fourth year in a row, HealthPartners has been named to the IBM Watson Health® 15 Top Health Systems list. The organization is the only one in the upper Midwest to receive this distinction, which is based on a number of key clinical and operational performance indicators and year-over-year improvement.

“I’m proud of our clinicians and care teams whose dedication and caring make recognition like this possible,” said Andrea Walsh, HealthPartners President and CEO. “We’re also grateful to our patients and members who put their trust in HealthPartners. We’re committed to deepening that trust every day, in every interaction.”

IBM Watson Health® identified the top health systems by evaluating 332 health systems and 2,492 hospitals that are members of health systems. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency and patient experience. IBM Watson Health® established the list to help identify top performance benchmarks that may help other health care organizations achieve consistent, balanced, and sustainable high performance.

“Hospitals, health systems and the dedicated clinicians and staff who work at these organizations have emerged as true heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are grateful to be able to recognize these extraordinary leaders at this time,” said Kyu Rhee, M.D., M.P.P., Vice President and Chief Health Officer, IBM Watson Health.
