Southern Hills Hospital among nation's 100 Top Hospitals® by Fortune and PINC AI third year in a row

Las Vegas, NV – Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center is being recognized as one of the nation's 100 Top Hospitals® in the teaching category for 2024. This according to PINC AI™, the technology and services brand of Premier, Inc., and reported by Fortune.

This marks the third consecutive year Southern Hills Hospital has made the top 100 list. For 30 years, the 100 Top Hospitals® program has produced annual studies designed to recognize the nation's highest-performing hospitals.

“I'm thrilled Southern Hills Hospital is being recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals for the third consecutive year by Fortune and PINC AI,” said Southern Hills Hospital Chief Executive Officer Alexis Mussi. “This prestigious accolade reaffirms our commitment to excellence in patient care and highlights the dedication of our entire team. We are honored to be consistently recognized among the best in the nation and see that our efforts in patient safety and care are being recognized at a national level.”

This year, based on comparisons between the study’s top performers and a peer group of similar hospitals, the analysis found that the top performers of the 100 Top Hospitals® program delivered better outcomes while operating more efficiently and at a lower cost. Compared to peer hospitals, this year's top performers had:

  • 39 percent fewer inpatient deaths than peer hospitals.
  • 26.6 percent fewer patients with complications.
  • 30.6 percent fewer healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).
  • A 21.1 percent lower inpatient expense per discharge.
  • 0.5-day shorter average length of stay.
  • Better reported patient experience scores, with a top-box Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) score of 73 percent versus 67 percent for peer hospitals.

The 100 Top Hospitals® program aims to inspire hospital and health system leaders to strive for higher performance and provide added value to the communities they serve. These measurements transparently help health system leaders compare their performance to that of their competitors by using objective, reliable, and significant indicators of operational excellence.
