Northern Utah Rehabilitation Hospital has been named in the Top 10 percent of inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the United States for 3 years in a row. The hospital’s care was cited as being a patient-centered, effective, efficient and timely.
“Achieving Top 10 percent is a measure of how well we live and follow our guiding principles of compassionate, patient-centered, outcome-oriented care,” says Reuben Jessup, COO of Northern Utah Rehabilitation Hospital. “By reaching that benchmark for each of the three years that our hospital has been eligible, it is a confirmation of the excellent care that our facility and staff provide, and of our ongoing commitment to provide the best rehabilitative care available.”
Northern Utah Rehabilitation Hospital was ranked in the Top 10 percent from among 870 inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationwide by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a non-profit corporation that was developed with support from the U.S. Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. The UDSMR maintains the world’s largest database of rehabilitation outcomes.
“Being recognized in the Top 10 percent is important to us because it is a reflection of the priorities we have established in our organization,” says Ryan Keele, CEO of Northern Utah Rehabilitation Hospital. “Patient outcomes are at the core of all our efforts. It’s why we do what we do.”
Keele also went on to say, “We received this ranking because of our fantastic clinical leadership, headed by Dr. Joseph Fyans and the group of clinicians that care for our patients every day. This — paired with our interdisciplinary approach to rehabilitation — allows us to maximize the amount of progress patients can make in their short time with us.”
