PINC AI recognizes HCA Healthcare’s Mountain Division, with care sites in Utah, Idaho and Alaska

Salt Lake City, UT — Utah’s eight MountainStar Healthcare hospitals are part of one of the nation’s Top 15 Health Systems™, according to an independent analysis based on a scorecard provided by PINC AI™, the technology and services brand of Premier, Inc., and reported by Fortune.

HCA Healthcare’s Mountain Division, which encompasses the 80 MountainStar care sites in Utah as well as sister facilities in Alaska and Idaho, shared the top ranking in the Medium Health Systems category. The ranking is based on an objective, quantitative analysis of publicly available data to identify the top health systems in the U.S.

“This is an exceptional accomplishment that speaks to the skill and passion of our nearly 10,000 colleagues in the Mountain Division, as well as the physicians and providers who choose to practice with us,” said Greg Angle, president of HCA Healthcare’s Mountain Division. “In 1.5 million annual patient interactions, our extraordinary team shows their commitment to our shared mission of caring for people and improving lives.”

Seven of the division’s 11 hospitals were previously named to PINC AI’s list of the Top 100 Hospitals™, including six MountainStar facilities. MountainStar Healthcare was also named a Top 15 Health System in 2021.

The Mountain Division is one of 15 divisions of HCA Healthcare, one of the nation’s leading providers of health services. The knowledge, data and best practices from HCA Healthcare’s 37 million annual patient interactions enhances the care delivered in Utah, Idaho and Alaska, division leaders say.

“It’s an honor to be part of this network of caregivers. The insights from across our HCA Healthcare team have a positive impact on the quality of care in the communities we serve from Anchorage to Payson,” Angle added.

The PINC AI study aims to inspire hospital and health system leaders to pursue higher performance and deliver added value to their patients and communities. The quantitative study is based on a balanced scorecard which consists of a variety of measurements distributed across four pillars: clinical, financial, operational and patient experience.
