The Community Value Index®
With healthcare costs skyrocketing, increasing demand for transparency, and greater focus on tax-exempt status requirements; hospitals executives face a daunting task of objectively proving their hospital’s value to their community.

Cleverley + Associates was the first independent organization to release a nation-wide study on hospital community value. The Community Value Index® was first published as part of the 2004 edition of the State of the Hospital Industry and has grown to be leading metric in the industry. For the ninth year, the State of the Hospital Industry includes the Community Value Index® (CVI) hospital analysis. This analysis yields the Community Value Leadership AwardsTM: The Community Value 100® and the Community Value Five Star® hospitals designations.

The CVI was the first study of its kind and remains the most comprehensive index dedicated to hospital value assessment. The purpose of the annual study is to provide a measure of the value that a hospital provides to its community by examining ten measures in four key performance areas:
  1. Financial viability and plant reinvestment
  2. Hospital cost structure
  3. Hospital charge structure
  4. Hospital quality performance
Fundamentally, the CVI suggests that a hospital provides value to the community when it is financially viable, is appropriately reinvesting back into the facility, maintains a low cost structure, has reasonable charges, and provides high quality care to patients.
