The Lown Institute Hospitals Index is the first ranking to evaluate hospital social responsibility of more than 3,000 U.S. hospitals.
The Social Responsibility ranking is based on 54 metrics across three main categories: equity, value, and outcomes. Only 75 hospitals made the Lown Index Honor Roll by earning “A” Grades in all three of those categories. See the Honor Roll hospitals, and other key findings from our full results below.
