Draper, UT — MountainStar’s Lone Peak Hospital has been recognized by the Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics, Emergency Care and Patient Safety. Each of these three designations place the Draper-based community hospital in the top one percent of hospitals nationwide in these categories.
The annual awards reflect what women say they want from a hospital and facilitate informed decision-making when choosing the best care possible. Within the community it serves, Lone Peak Hospital is well known for going above-and-beyond to ensure exceptional clinical care that follows national standards for best practices.
“We are honored at Lone Peak Hospital to be recognized on a national level for the care we provide to the community. Our colleagues care for our patients like they are family,” said Brian Lines, CEO of Lone Peak Hospital. “Over the past year, our departments have had to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic and have not missed a beat continuing to provide high-quality care every single day.”
The methodology for The America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics award combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. Lone Peak Hospital is one of only 408 award recipients; representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for obstetrics across the U.S.
The America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care award criteria include the percentage of patients who came to the emergency department with stroke symptoms that received brain scan results within 45 minutes of arrival. Also included this year were hospitals that performed well in responding to patients showing symptoms of severe sepsis. Other process of care measures included average time from admission to a room and time patients spent in the emergency department before leaving from the visit. The award represents average measure times in the highest 25th to 50th percentile in the country. The methodology for this particular award combines Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences.
The America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety award evaluates 11 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) measures of infections and complications, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results, and primary research about women’s healthcare preferences. It is the only award recognizing excellence in patient safety based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.
“Not all hospitals can say they are the safest in the country, and by identifying those who are, the Women’s Choice Award is helping the female consumer identify the hospitals in her community that are dedicated to creating the safest patient experience,” said Delia Passi, Founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “This recognition is critical for women as they make over 80 percent of healthcare decisions and need to know they are putting themselves—and their family members—in the safest hands.”
