Ashtabula County – University Hospitals (UH) Geneva Medical Center has been selected as a 2014 Premier QUEST® “Award for High-Value Healthcare” winner. The national recognition was bestowed by Premier, Inc., a leading health care improvement company which unites an alliance of approximately 3,000 U.S. hospitals and 110,000 additional providers to transform health care.

Premier’s QUEST program represents the most comprehensive hospital collaborative in America, encompassing approximately 350 hospitals. UH Geneva Medical Center was named one of just 18 QUEST winners based on the hospital’s top performance according to the criteria in all six dimensions of the program:

  • Delivery of evidence-based care
  • Reduction of mortality
  • Reduction in cost of care
  • Reduction of preventable harm events
  • Improvement of the patient experience
  • Reduction of readmissions

UH Geneva Medical Center’s top honor recognizes that the community hospital actively works to improve the health of its community by collaborating to offer high-quality, cost-effective health care.

In addition, UH Conneaut Medical Center was named one of only 37 QUEST Award national finalists. Winners and finalists were announced in June at Premier’s annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas.

“These prestigious awards are the result of hard work, unparalleled expertise, inspiring teamwork and an unwavering commitment to the patients we serve in Ashtabula County, Lake County and the surrounding region,” says M. Steven Jones, President, UH Conneaut and Geneva medical centers. “Our physicians, nurses, staff members, volunteers and leadership team members at both hospitals made these recognitions possible, and they serve to move us to strive for even higher levels of excellence on behalf of our patients.”
