The Joint Commission, an organization that accredits and certifies more than 20,500 healthcare organizations and programs nationwide, recently published its annual list of “Top Performers on Key Quality Measures”—and 12 of the 18 Utah hospitals included are Intermountain facilities.
The program recognizes the top 36.9 percent of all accredited hospitals nationwide that attain excellence on accountability performance measures. The ranking is based on data reported in 2013 about clinical processes shown to be the most effective treatments for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, inpatient psychiatric services, stroke, venous thromboembolism, immunization, and perinatal care.
Intermountain hospitals on the “Top Performers” list include: Alta View, American Fork, Intermountain Medical Center, LDS Hospital, Logan Regional, Orem Community, Park City, Riverton, Sevier Valley, TOSH, Utah Valley, and Valley View. Click here to see the complete nationwide list.
