Lone Peak Hospital Recognized as a Top General Hospital
Lone Peak Hospital is one of two in Utah and 56 hospitals nationwide to achieve the 2016 Top General Hospital award from The Leapfrog Group. The hospital earned this prestigious recognition by providing the highest quality patient care.
As a Top General Hospital, Lone Peak is one of 115 Top Hospitals recognized by The Leapfrog Group this year. Each one is ranked in one of four categories; General, Children’s, Rural and Teaching. Top General Hospitals have better systems in place to prevent medication errors, provide higher quality maternity care, ensure safer high-risk procedures, and lower readmission rates.
“This award demonstrates our hospital staff’s commitment to excellence and making sure that our patient care is the highest quality,” said Mark Meadows, CEO at Lone Peak Hospital. “I cannot thank our caregivers and support staff enough for their dedication; we’re all honored to be recognized by The Leapfrog Group.”
Annually, about 1,805 hospitals nationwide report data to The Leapfrog Group during its Hospital Survey. The national organization compares hospitals’ performance on national standards of patient safety, quality, and efficiency and management structures. Based on the results, it ranks every participating hospital according to its ability to ensure patient safety, prevent errors and provide value.
