Report to the Community

Dear Community Members:

This year St. Mark’s Hospital is proud to celebrate 140 years of caring, quality, growth and giving back – traditions we have kept alive since our Hospital opened in Salt Lake City. In 1872, the Episcopal Diocese of Salt Lake founded our Hospital. St. Mark’s has had three locations since its inception, and has been in its current location in the Millcreek Township since 1972.

This Report to the Community is meant to communicate the successes and contributions of the Hospital, with an emphasis on transparency and commitment, to the community we serve.

St. Mark’s Hospital enjoys an outstanding reputation due in large measure to the high quality of its staff and volunteers. Their efforts have great impact on this superb reputation, as reflected in several prestigious national awards our Hospital has recently received:

  • Excellence Awards for Overall Women’s Health Services and Pulmonary Care; Five–star rated for Treatment of Heart Failure, Joint Replacement, Spine Surgery, Overall Pulmonary Services, COPD, Treatment of Pneumonia, Pulmonary Embolism, Stroke, Pancreatitis, and Women’s Services (HealthGrades)
  • “50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals” award recipient for 9 years (Thomson Reuters)
  • Joint Commission certified in Stroke Care; American Heart and Stroke Association Gold Status for Stroke Care

Choosing a physician and hospital are some of the most important decisions people can ever make. As Utah’s first hospital, St. Mark’s has been the hospital of choice for thousands of area residents since 1872. In many ways, St. Mark’s Hospital is “Utah‘s Finest Hospital.”

Our focus is providing quality service to every patient and family with whom we interact. We also invest prudently in needed equipment, technology and facilities to provide superior services. We invite you to visit St. Mark’s Hospital for your healthcare needs if you are not already a current patient, and hope you continue to if you are already a patient.

It is our pleasure to continue serving our community.
