The Lown Institute is a nonpartisan healthcare think tank. Annually, it evaluates over 3,600 U.S. hospitals using more than 50 metrics that encompass equity, value of care and patient outcomes. These assessments aim to identify the top-ranking hospitals in each state with regards to social responsibility. The metrics cover various aspects, such as inclusivity, pay equity, community benefit, avoiding overuse, cost efficiency, clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction and patient safety.
