SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eight Intermountain Healthcare hospitals received the HealthInsight Hospital Quality Award which recognizes hospitals for quality of care and patient safety.
The eight Utah Intermountain hospitals that received the HealthInsight Quality awards for excellent performance on publicly reported quality of care measures include:

• Intermountain Fillmore Community Hospital
• Intermountain Logan Regional Hospital
• Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital
• Intermountain Sevier Valley Hospital
• The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital (TOSH)

Eligibility for the award is based on a composite ranking of performance on quality measures reported on Medicare's Hospital Compare website. Hospitals that rank in the top 25th percentile for the composite score are eligible for the award. These factors also help consumers decide how well providers care for their patients.
