Lone Peak Hospital has been named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® List!
We are proud to be recognized as a Merative top 100 Hospital for the fourth year in a row. As Dr. Frist, one of the founding members of HCA would say, “Bricks and mortar don’t make a hospital, people do.”
“We are fortunate to work with the best at Lone Peak and this award demonstrates the commitment of our colleagues to provide world class care close to home. We thank our patients for instilling trust in us to provide them with the best possible care and service!” - Brian Lines, Lone Peak Hospital CEO
Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, has identified the top hospitals from a rigorous evaluation of 2,650 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in the U.S. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience, and financial health. Merative, formerly IBM Watson Health, established the list to help identify best practices that may help other healthcare organizations achieve consistent, balanced, and sustainable high performance.
Being recognized as a Top 100 hospital is a huge accomplishment. This credit is due to the compassionate, patient-focused cared our team members gives every day. The past few years have been challenging to put it lightly so I hope each and every one of you can take a second to congratulate yourselves on a job well-done. Because of all of you all continuously raising the bar Lone Peak has made a name as a place that provides excellent patient care and maintains a stellar patient safety record. This year we also received an “A” Safety Grade from the LeapFrog Group, and are recognized by healthgrades as a Five-Star recipient for treatment of Heart Failure in 2022.
Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals demonstrates Lone Peak Hospitals ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care. According to Merative, as compared to similar hospitals, the hospitals included on the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list had better results on key clinical and operational performance indicators. These include survival rates, patient complications, healthcare associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide readmission rates, length of stay, throughput in emergency departments, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from patients.
The Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals lists also incorporates a community health measure into its ranking process. For the community health measure, hospitals were surveyed across three components: 1) assessing hospital contributions to community health as a provider of critical services for community health and preventive care; 2) identifying ways that hospitals contribute to community health as a community partner teaming up with local organizations to implement critical programs; and 3) focusing on ways that hospitals promote community health through their practices as anchor institutions supporting local economic and social progress. The community health measure is weighted equally with other ranking measures.
