Richmond, Va. (Nov. 20, 2015) — HCA Virginia’s Chippenham, Johnston-Willis, Henrico Doctors’ Parham Doctors’, Retreat Doctors’ Hospitals and John Randolph Medical Center have been recognized as 2014 Top Performers on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission – the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations in the United States.
This is the fourth year the hospitals have earned this recognition and they are among 106 HCA Hospitals in the country to earn the status.
“Our hospitals continue to strive for excellence in patient safety, quality of care and positive outcomes,” said Ann Latstetter, chief nursing officer, HCA Capital Division. “I commend our health care teams for their hard work and dedication in keeping our patients top priority, and am confident that we will maintain the highest standards.”
The Top Performers program recognizes hospitals that attain excellence on accountability measures related to evidence-based care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, inpatient psychiatric services, stroke, venous thromboembolism, immunization and perinatal care.
“The Joint Commission’s Top Performers recognition uses objective data to determine the top hospitals, and we are proud that more than three-quarters of our hospitals have been recognized for their consistent achievement of high performance levels on key quality measures,” said Dr. Jonathan B. Perlin, HCA’s chief medical officer and president of clinical services. “We appreciate our colleagues across the country, whose dedication to evidence-based clinical practices helps ensure the best possible outcomes for the patients we’re privileged to treat.”
The Top Performers on Key Quality Measures program supports and provides an incentive for organizations to continually improve. The program also provides an opportunity for top-performing hospitals to celebrate their achievement of excellence in accountability measure performance.
