It's been a winning 12 years...

For the eighth year running in 2021, University of Utah Hospital is ranked the No. 1 hospital in Utah, and in the Salt Lake City metro area, by U.S. News & World Report.

University of Utah Health credits its employees for its national ranking as a Top 10 Academic Medical Center for quality and safety for 12 consecutive years!

In addition to its placement on the top 10 list, U of U Health also ranked in Vizient’s Ambulatory Care Quality and Accountability Awards in 2021. This is the seventh year in a row the U has ranked in the top five in this category.

And according to Becker's Hospital Review, analysis on ranking and award agencies for excellence in clinical care, patient outcomes, and staff and physician satisfaction, University of Utah Hospital has been ranked among the top 100 great hospitals in America four years in a row.

In 2019, the Huntsman Family announced a commitment of $150 million to UNI to establish the Huntsman Mental Health Institute. The institute is expected to become a nationally-recognized leader in research, care, education and community outreach—and a model for other states to follow.

In our 2021 employee engagement survey results:

• 98% of our employees were proud to tell people they work here!

• 98% of our employees would recommend us to family and friends who need care!

• 95% of our employees would recommend this as a good place to work!

These are fantastic statistics on their own, and are more than 30 percentage points higher than the national average. And OUR PEOPLE are the reason for these remarkable figures.

Not surprisingly, health care organizations with higher levels of staff engagement also have higher patient satisfaction scores, better staff retention, and a stronger culture of safety. It’s a great place to work and live, and the nation is taking note!
