Crawford Memorial Hospital has earned three of the prestigious "Excellence in Patient Care" awards from Studer Group, a Huron Solution. CMH was the only hospital nationwide to win in three categories.
Specifically, CMH was honored for demonstrating outstanding performance in patient care in ambulatory surgery, in post-acute patient care (Home Health), and during care transitions (when a patient is transferred from department to department within a hospital or when a patient is transferred from an acute care to a longer-term care setting).
“Within the healthcare industry, Studer Group is universally recognized as a leader. It’s really a tremendous achievement to be honored three times,” stated CMH CEO Doug Florkowski. “The community can be proud that its hospital’s staff is ranked among the best in the business.”
The awards will be formally presented to CMH at the 16th Annual "What’s Right in Health Care" conference in August. The conference attracts administrative and clinical healthcare professionals from the US, Canada, and Australia.
“It takes dedication from every individual to provide excellent care and this award should be celebrated by all those who work daily to make a difference,” stated Debbie Ritchie, president of Studer Group. “They are what’s right in healthcare.”
CMH has earned the Excellence in Patient Care award three times previously: for educating patients about medications, for improvement of inpatient satisfaction scores, and for overall performance in Ambulatory Surgery.
