University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center Recognized for Patient Care Excellence

Monday, January 30, 2012

University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center has received national recognition for its high-quality medical care.

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at UH Geauga Medical Center recently earned the silver Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. As a recipient of this honor, the ICU joins an elite community of adult, pediatric and progressive care units that demonstrate excellence in clinical outcomes. In addition, Beacon awardees embrace evidence-based standards in nursing staff recruitment and retention, education, training and mentoring. Units that achieve this three-year designation meet national criteria consistent with Magnet Recognition, the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and the National Quality Healthcare Award.

UH Geauga Medical Center also received verification from the Ohio Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) and became the first community hospital in Ohio to be approved by the Emergency Departments Pediatric Prepared program. The program was established to assess the effectiveness of national EMSC State Partnership grants, which fund activities designed to improve pediatric emergency care at community hospitals. Verification signifies that care provided for children by the UH Geauga Medical Center Emergency Department meets national quality benchmarks.
