The Boise hospital was recognized in the general hospital category.

The watchdog group determined winners by looking at performance measures at nearly 1,900 hospitals across the country, according to a St. Luke’s blog post. “Those include preventing infections, reducing C-sections, the hospital’s capacity to prevent medication errors, and leadership policies and practices.”
