HCA Mountain Division a Top HealthSystem

Press Release

May 28, 2013

The HCA Mountain Division is one of 65 health systems that recently achieved a place in the top quintile (20 percent) nationwide. Modern Healthcare recognized the 15 Top Health Systems in the country along with 50 others that together represent the highest performers among 328 U.S. health systems with several hospitals.

Better known as MountainStar Healthcare in Utah, the HCA Mountain Division is the only network to accomplish this notable ranking in every state where it operates, which also includes Alaska and Idaho.

According to publically reported data, each of the health systems included in the top 20 percent nationally has proven to consistently deliver high-quality care. These networks of hospitals also decreased complications, reduced infections and increased patient survival rates.

“This kind of reliable excellence, day after day, is only achieved through the commitments and efforts of the teams at our hospitals; doctors, nurses, other care givers and administrators,” said Scott Williams, M.D., M.P.H., chief medical officer at MountainStar Healthcare. 

In April, Modern Healthcare showcased the results of the fifth annual study conducted by Truven Health Analytics to identify the top U.S. health systems. Truven researchers evaluated each network of hospitals on system-wide clinical and operational performance utilizing publically reported data from multiple government sources. Each of the health systems included in the top quintile performed better overall in areas such as survival rates, 30-day mortality rates, complications, hospital stays and patient safety.
