Bountiful, UT - For a fifth consecutive year, Lakeview Hospital has been named one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals® by Truven Health Analytics™, a leading provider of information and solutions to improve the cost and quality of health care.
"At Lakeview Hospital, our mission is to provide the quality of healthcare we want our closest loved ones to receive. Having been recognized as one of Truven's 100 Top Hospitals five years in a row, it is evident that our staff and physicians uphold this mission." Troy Wood, chief executive officer at Lakeview Hospital, said. "We are extremely honored to be ranked in the top 100 hospitals out of over 5,000 hospitals country-wide. We thank our patients for instilling trust in us to provide them with the best possible care and service!"
Each year, Truven Health Analytics conducts independent, quantitative research of patient outcomes and safety, national treatment standards (core measures), patient satisfaction, operational efficiency and financial stability at more than 2,700 hospitals nationwide. According to Truven, the facilities selected to the 100 Top Hospitals list have consistently demonstrated quality care at a reasonable cost.
Lakeview, a 138-bed facility, is listed in the Small Community Hospitals category along with 20 other facilities across the country.
According to this year's 100 Top Hospitals study, the nation's best hospitals demonstrated that quality care and operational efficiency can often be achieved simultaneously.
To maintain the study's high level of integrity, Truven Health researchers only analyze publicly available data. That includes Medicare cost reports, Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) data, as well as core measures and patient satisfaction data provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Compare website.
The 100 Top Hospitals were announced in the March 6, 2017, issue of Modern Healthcare magazine. Hospitals do not apply for this recognition and honorees do not purchase the right to market inclusion in the 100 Top Hospitals list.
