West Valley Medical Center is among the nation's top 100 hospitals according to an annual list published by Fortune in partnership with PINC AI. The 2024 Fortune/PINC AI 100 Top Hospitals lists recognizes the highest-quality performers and promoted continuous improvement in healthcare.

“Recognition like this is a reflection on our colleagues and their commitment to delivering high-quality care to the communities we serve,” said Travis Leach, chief executive officer of West Valley Medical Center. “We're proud to announce this latest award, especially during Nurses Week and as we head into Hospital Week. It speaks volumes to our patients who can rely on the nation's top hospital within minutes from home, ready to care for them and their loved ones.”

West Valley, a 150-bed facility, is listed in the Medium Community Hospitals category. The Canyon County hospital has achieved national recognition for its implementation of initiatives to improve quality and enhance patient satisfaction. Some of these initiatives include:

  • An aggressive process for early identification and treatment of severe infections, like sepsis, proven to improve outcomes.
  • A commitment to patient engagement by introducing patients to their care team and sharing information at bedside during shift changes and department transfers.
  • Daily safety huddles and weekly quality meetings to review day-to-day activities regarding current safety needs of patients and staff.

The recognition is also based on an analysis of Medicare data that reflects measures of clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience and financial health.
