The hospitals are selected based on rankings and awards from reputable sources, including U.S. News & World Report, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades, the American Nurses Credentialing Center and The Leapfrog Group, among other resources. The final result is a list of 100 hospitals that are considered overall healthcare leaders in their region, state or the nation.

According to Becker’s, “The hospitals on this list are well-known for a multitude of reasons, such as having a strong history of medical innovation, providing top-notch care to patients, leading clinical advancement with forward-thinking research or holding an irreplaceable spot in their communities”.

The Becker’s profile of University of Utah Hospital states, “U.S. News & World Report ranked University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics the No. 1 hospital in both Utah and the Salt Lake City metro area in its 2015-16 rankings.
