“Patient safety and satisfaction are top priority for our staff at Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus, “said Steven Anderson, CEO of Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus. “The Leapfrog Top Hospital Award is an outstanding accomplishment and serves as motivation to push forward and continue to strive for excellence.”
Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus was one of 98 Top Hospitals recognized and selected from hospitals participating in The Leapfrog Group’s annual survey. Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus also received an “A” for its Hospital Safety score. The list includes:
- 24 Top Rural Hospitals
- 62 Top Urban Hospitals
- 12 Top Children’s Hospitals
The selection is based on the results of The Leapfrog Group’s annual hospital survey, which measures hospitals’ performance on patient safety and quality, focusing on three critical areas of hospital care: how patients fare, resource use and management structures established to prevent errors. Performance across many areas of hospital care is considered in establishing the qualifications for the award, including survival rates for high-risk procedures and a hospital’s ability to prevent medication errors.
“Leapfrog’s Top Hospital award is widely acknowledged as one of the most prestigious distinctions any hospital can achieve in the United States,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Top hospitals have lower infection rates, better outcomes, decreased length of stay and fewer readmissions. By achieving Top Hospital status, Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus has proven it prioritizes the safety of its patients, is committed to transparency and provides exemplary care for families and patients in West Valley City. I congratulate the board, staff, and clinicians of Jordan Valley Medical Center West Valley Campus whose efforts achieved these results.”
