The honored hospitals — which sponsor numerous medical and scientific breakthroughs, provide best-in-class patient care, and are stalwarts of their communities — include Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Stanford Hospital.
In compiling the list, Becker’s drew on a number of national sources, including rankings by Healthgrades, Truven Health Analytics, U.S. News & World Report, Leapfrog, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center, according to the publication. The honored hospitals were included for "having a strong history of innovation, providing top-notch care to patients, leading clinical advancement with forward-thinking research, or holding an irreplaceable spot in their communities," Becker's says.
The final result is a list of 100 hospitals that are considered overall leaders in their regions, states, and the nation. Intermountain Medical Center was previously named to Becker’s 100 great hospitals list in 2012.
Becker's profile of Intermountain Medical Center says: "In its 2015-16 rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked Intermountain Medical Center as the number 1 hospital in both the Salt Lake City metropolitan area and Utah. The hospital is involved with over 400 clinical research projects focused on advancing medical science to improve healthcare quality and efficiency. The facility also houses six intensive care units and a world-renowned mechanical/artificial heart transplant program. Other cutting-edge technology housed at Intermountain include the da Vinci Robot, a 3-D imaging system for mammography screening, and hybrid operating rooms that allow heart catheterization procedures and cardiovascular surgery to take place simultaneously for patients with complex heart conditions.”
