    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Becker’s Hospital Review, a trade journal for hospital and health system leadership, has named Dixie Regional Medical Center to their list of 50 hospitals with the lowest 30-day readmission rates for heart attack patients.

    According to the article, hospitals recognized by Becker’s were selected based on rates listed in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Hospital Compare Database for a three-year period from July 2008 through June 2011.

    Intermountain Medical Center, also an Intermountain Healthcare facility, topped the list with a readmission rate of 15.1 percent. Dixie’s rate was 16.2 percent – the 10th best rating listed. No other Utah hospitals are included among the 50.
