Monday, November 17, 2014

CLEVELAND – University Hospitals Conneaut and Geneva medical centers and five other hospitals in the University Hospitals (UH) system have been recognized as “Top Performers on Key Quality Measures” by The Joint Commission (JC), the national organization that accredits and certifies the nation’s hospitals, health care organizations and programs.

JC’s Top Performer program recognizes hospitals demonstrating commitment and excellence in assuring that evidence-based interventions are delivered in an accurate and timely manner. The program identifies accountability measures that produce the greatest positive impact on patient outcomes. The findings are based on data reported in the previous year on clinical processes that are shown to be the best treatments for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.

“We continually strive to improve on the quality care that we provide to our patients,” said M. Steven Jones, President, UH Conneaut and Geneva medical centers. “This recognition from a third-party, independent, widely recognized organization such as The Joint Commission validates our efforts.”

The following UH medical centers were recognized by JC for the following measure sets:

UH Ahuja: Acute Myocardial Infarction, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care
UH Bedford: Acute Myocardial Infarction, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care
UH Conneaut: Pneumonia and Surgical Care
UH Geauga: Acute Myocardial Infarction, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care
UH Geneva: Pneumonia and Surgical Care
UH Richmond: Acute Myocardial Infarction, Heart Failure, Pneumonia and Surgical Care
