Payson is not a big city. In fact, if you didn’t grow up in Utah County, you might not even know that Payson is a growing valley town just south of Provo, with a population that is approaching 20,000. The other thing you probably don’t know is that Payson is home to a rather impressive healthcare facility called Mountain View Hospital.
Some people might make the mistake of concluding that a small Utah town would be home to a small community hospital with limited services and care capabilities. But, in the case of Mountain View Hospital, such a conclusion would be a rather large mistake. Case in point…
- Mountain View Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission, and was recently recognized as a top performer in the state of Utah for Heart Attack, Pneumonia, and Surgical Care – outperforming all of the more prominent facilities in the state.
- A recent poll indicated that100% of outpatients were satisfied with the overall nursing care at Mountain View Hospital, and 98% of outpatients gave high scores for the concern demonstrated by caregivers and staff.
- Mountain View Hospital has consistently demonstrated a commitment to growing with the needs of the community. This has resulted in projects like a $11.3 million renovation and expansion including the new 51,000 square foot Mountain View Medical Plaza, and a $2.7 million remodel of the Mountain View Women’s Center including a dedicated entrance and registration area.
- Modern healthcare features cover the Mountain View Hospital campus, including spacious and private labor, delivery and childbirth recovery rooms, upgraded with the latest equipment; and centralized women’s diagnostic services including digital mammography, ultrasound and bone density testing.
- Mountain View Hospital has demonstrated leadership with advanced patient initiatives including average emergency department wait times below 30 minutes, streamlined response procedures that dramatically improve care for heart attack patients, and a top notch hospitalist program for families.
Mountain View Hospital, unlike others who fail to walk the talk, is truly committed to delivering high-quality services to patients. The community appreciates the transparency of hospital performance, quality outcomes and healthcare costs.
So before assuming that better healthcare services might be available in a bigger city, one should consider other credible sources of information about hospital quality and performance, including these:
- Health Grades hospital ratings
- Hospital Compare results
- Utah hospital comparison reports
- The Joint Commission
