New hospital rankings show ‘elite’ facilities struggle with health equity, inclusivity

Nonprofit hospitals were only slightly more represented in the top 100 list compared to their for-profit peers, and nonprofits and for-profits were very similar in their scores for community benefit and inclusivity.

Lown experts called the result[5] “unexpected” given that nonprofits have a mission to invest in community health — and have to do so, per IRS regulations, to justify their tax-exempt status. Nonprofits have faced rising scrutiny from regulators on this very issue.

Four of the top 10 performing hospitals are located in Texas, but hospitals in Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Ohio, and Rhode Island have the best Lown Index rankings on average.
