“We are proud to be recipients of this distinguished award. To be recognized in the top ten percentile is a tribute to the work of the Nursing and Quality Departments and Medical Staff Leadership,” said Sylvia Young, President of Sunrise Health.

“HealthInsight commends Sunrise Hospital and MountainView Hospital for its commitment to excellence in improving patient care,” said Marc Bennett, President and CEO of HealthInsight.

The HealthInsight Quality Award program was launched in September 2004 to promote transparency in health care. According to the Institute of Medicine, transparency in health care means a system that is “accountable to the public, works openly, makes results known, and builds trust through disclosure.”

By using available quality data to identify high performing providers and publicizing the results, HealthInsight aims to help providers improve health care and help patients become more active and informed participants in that care.
