Banner Hospital honored for quality care
Banner Churchill Community Hospital was one of three Nevada hospitals honored for high performance in quality care measures and patient satisfaction.
HeathInsight, a nonprofit health care collaborative, presented the 2016 HealthInsight Quality Award earlier this month at the convention in South Lake Tahoe.
Recipients were chosen based on their performance on inpatient and outpatient process of care measures, a national survey of patients’ experience of hospital care and the facility’s 30-day readmission data. The data is combined into a single weighted score. Hospitals at or above the 75th percentile national received the award.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to recognize these hospitals from across the state for their excellence in performance and commitment to person-centered care,” said Deborah Huber, HealthInsight Nevada’s executive director.
Banner was joined by Renown South Meadows Medical Center in Reno and Mesa View Regional Hospital in Mesquite. BCCH Chief Executive Officer Hoyt Skabelund said he was proud to be part of a team that emphasizes quality and patient satisfaction.
“Two of the three hospitals recognized are community hospitals,” Skabelund said. “That shows that excellent care exists in smaller facilities for residents so they don’t have to drive long distances to large facilities. Congratulations to the team of providers on this accomplishment.”
