For the second year in a row, Timpanogos Regional Hospital is the only hospital in Utah County named among the 2017 "100 Great Community Hospitals" by Becker's Hospital Review. Only five community hospitals in Utah achieved this notable distinction.
"We are honored to be recognized again as a 100 Great Community Hospital," said Kimball Anderson, CEO at Timpanogos Regional Hospital. "The key to being a great community hospital is being a part of a great community. We are blessed to serve the wonderful people living in Utah County and commend our physicians, nurses, volunteers and the rest of our staff for providing the high quality healthcare this community deserves."
To develop this year's list, the Becker's editorial team considered U.S. hospitals with fewer than 550 patient beds and rankings and awards from one or more notable healthcare review organizations. Hospitals featured in the 2016 list had earned recognition from national healthcare ranking organizations like the American Nurses Credentialing Center, CareChex, iVantage Health Analytics, Healthgrades, Leapfrog Group and Truven Health Analytics.
