MountainView Hospital has been named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals® list. This is the second time MountainView has been recognized with this honor as one of the top performing teaching hospitals in the U.S. The annual list was published by Fortune.
Merative, a data, analytics and technology partner for the health industry, has identified the top hospitals from a rigorous evaluation of 2,650 short-term, acute care, non-federal hospitals in the U.S. The annual list recognizes excellence in clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience, and financial health. Merative, formerly IBM Watson Health, established the list to help identify best practices that may help other healthcare organizations achieve consistent, balanced, and sustainable high performance.
“This is a well-deserved recognition of the MountainView team, who works tirelessly to put the care of our patients first in everything that we do,” said Matthew Cova, MountainView Hospital interim Chief Executive Officer. “This award demonstrates the excellent patient outcomes MountainView achieves for its patients, while teaching the next generation of physicians for our community.”
Recognition as one of the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals demonstrates MountainView Hospital’s ongoing commitment to prioritize patient-centered care. According to Merative, as compared to similar hospitals, the hospitals included on the Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals list had better results on key clinical and operational performance indicators. These include survival rates, patient complications, healthcare associated infections, 30-day mortality and 30-day hospital-wide readmission rates, length of stay, throughput in emergency departments, inpatient expenses, profitability and ratings from patients.
The Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals lists also incorporates a community health measure into its ranking process. For the community health measure, hospitals were surveyed across three components: 1) assessing hospital contributions to community health as a provider of critical services for community health and preventive care; 2) identifying ways that hospitals contribute to community health as a community partner teaming up with local organizations to implement critical programs; and 3) focusing on ways that hospitals promote community health through their practices as anchor institutions supporting local economic and social progress. The community health measure is weighted equally with other ranking measures.
