Three Western Pennsylvania hospitals made this year's list of the Top 100 hospitals in America, business information company Thomson Reuters said Monday.

Allegheny General Hospital, North Side, made the list under the category of major teaching hospital. UPMC Hamot, Erie, landed on the list under the teaching hospital category for the second year in a row. And St. Clair Hospital, Mt. Lebanon, was named a top large community hospital.

Thomson Reuters evaluated 2,886 hospitals using public information and rated their performance in mortality, medical complications, patient safety, average patient stay, expenses, profitability, patient satisfaction, adherence to clinical standards, post-discharge mortality, and readmission rates for heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia.
