Premier Inc. recognized Sycamore Medical Center and Fort Hamilton Hospital as Finalists for the QUEST Award for High-value Healthcare for providing outstanding patient care. Kettering, Grandview, and Southview medical centers and Greene Memorial Hospital were named Citation of Merit recipients.
Only 21 hospitals received finalist recognition for achieving top performance in any five of these six areas measured in Premier’s QUEST collaborative, including cost and efficiency, evidence-based care, mortality, safety, patient and family engagement, and appropriate hospital use. Citation of Merit recipients reached top performance in four out of six areas.
“This recognition acknowledges our hospitals’ success in improving services through innovation, dedication, and commitment to our goal of the best care for the patients we serve,” says Brenda Kuhn, chief quality officer for Kettering Health Network. “We will continue to work with the QUEST collaborative to identify best practices that we can adopt throughout all our facilities.”
