2016 designation recognizes proven records of excellence in patient care
Lakeview Hospital has been named among the 2016 “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review. Only five community hospitals in Utah achieved this notable distinction.
“One defining characteristic of the hospitals who received this honor was the culture within those hospital walls. That culture is what makes Lakeview great. We hope patients can feel it when they enter our doors. Our caregivers look patients and visitors in the eyes, assuring them they are going to be able to give them the care they deserve. Each of our employees has made a Promise and they truly fulfill those promises every day.” said Lakeview Hospital CEO, Troy Wood. “When patients feel like they have received the highest quality of care, it truly leads to healing. Healing bodies, minds and hearts. And, when that happens, the nation takes notice and we get honored with incredible awards.”
To develop this year’s list, the Becker’s editorial team considered U.S. hospitals with fewer than 550 patient beds and rankings and awards from one or more notable healthcare review organizations. Hospitals featured in the 2016 list had earned recognition from national healthcare ranking organizations like the American Nurses Credentialing Center, CareChex, iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, Leapfrog Group and Truven Health Analytics.
With 128 beds, Lakeview Hospital was recognized for achieving the following recognition:
- Among the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® in the small community hospital category for four years in a row and six years total (Truven Health Analytics 2013 - 2016).
