2017 Truven Health Analytics Award
American Fork Hospital has been named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics®, part of the IBM Watson Health Business. This is the seventh time American Fork Hospital has been recognized with the honor.
The annual study, which began in 1993, evaluates the performance of hospitals across the country in 11 key areas that encompass their ability to safeguard patients, improve outcomes, provide evidence-based treatments and deliver care at a reasonable cost.
“This recognition from Truven Health is an honor for our hospital and our community,” said Jason Wilson, administrator of American Fork Hospital. “Our team of dedicated caregivers work tirelessly to deliver the best care to our patients. This award demonstrates we are on the right track and making a difference in the health of our community. We are very pleased to be among the top hospitals in the nation.”
The 100 Top Hospitals were announced in the March 6 edition of Modern Healthcare magazine. The 2017 winner’s list and study information is available at 100tophospitals.com.
