MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, part of HCA Healthcare’s Far West Division, have both been named among PINC AI’s™ 100 Top Hospitals® rankings for 2024. For 30 years the 100 Top Hospitals® program has been producing annual studies designed to recognize the nation’s highest performing hospitals.

“The PINC 100-Top Hospitals recognition is well-deserved for the MountainView team, who delivers safe and quality care day in and day out to our patients and community,” said Hiral Patel, MountainView Hospital chief executive officer. “This recognition honors the hard work by so many people to create a culture of safety and is a testament to the focus by all colleagues to accurate, safe care to every patient, every time.”

"I'm thrilled Southern Hills Hospital has been recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals for the third consecutive year by Fortune and PINC AI,” said Southern Hills Hospital Chief Executive Officer Alexis Mussi. “This prestigious accolade reaffirms our commitment to excellence in patient care and highlights the dedication of our entire team. We are honored to be consistently recognized among the best in the nation and see that our efforts in patient safety and care are being recognized at a national level."

This year, based on comparisons between the study’s top performers and a peer group of similar hospitals, the analysis found the top performers of the 100 Top Hospitals® program delivered better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost.

  • 26.6 percent fewer patients with complications.

  • 30.6 percent fewer healthcare-associated infections.

  • A 21.1 percent lower inpatient expense per discharge.

  • 39 percent fewer inpatient deaths than peer hospitals.
