MountainView Hospital was honored as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals®, teaching category for 2024, according to an independent quality analysis provided by PINC AI, the technology and services brand of Premier, Inc., and reported by Fortune.

“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.”

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

  • 39 percent fewer inpatient deaths than peer hospitals.
  • 26.6 percent fewer patients with complications.
  • 30.6 percent fewer healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
  • A 21.1 percent lower inpatient expense per discharge.
  • 0.5-day shorter average length of stay.
  • Better reported patient experience scores, with a top-box Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score of 73 percent versus 67 percent for peer hospitals.

“Hospitals and health systems continue to recognize the vital importance of performance improvement for high-quality patient care, proving value and enabling the innovations that drive healthcare forward,” said Leigh Anderson, Premier’s chief operating officer and the leader of PINC AI. “The transparent, non-biased and actionable data this study provides helps leaders make informed decisions for change and proves that MountainView Hospital excels across a range of core performance indicators, which can directly lead to significantly higher quality patient outcomes, with fewer readmissions and complications.”

The 100 Top Hospitals® program aims to inspire hospital and health system leaders to strive for higher performance and provide added value to the communities they serve. These measurements transparently help health system leaders compare their performance to that of their competitors by using objective, reliable, and significant indicators of operational excellence.
