ASHEBORO - Each year since 2011, The Joint Commission, Randolph Hospital’s accrediting body and responsible for accrediting more than 4,000 other hospitals of all types, releases a list of Top-Performers on Key Quality Measures®. Both this year and last, Randolph Hospital made the list and achieved top-performer status in the first four quality measures: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
“We are pleased to receive this recognition for the work that we are doing to improve patient care in these four important areas,” said Dr. Charles West, Randolph Hospital Chief Medical Officer. “Both the nursing and the medical staff have made great strides in working together and with our community partners to improve the care of the patients that we serve. We are committed to quality improvement in every aspect of patient care.”
Randolph Hospital was one of 1,224 hospitals to meet or exceed The Joint Commission target rates of performance for 2013. Randolph Hospital will also be included in The Joint Commission’s annual America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety report.
This prestigious recognition comes just a month after The Joint Commission reaccredited Randolph Hospital’s laboratory, citing an “exceptionally good report,” and five months after Randolph Hospital won a QUEST Award for High-Value Healthcare. The 350-hospital QUEST collaborative, which stands for Quality, Efficiency, Safety and Transparency, is an initiative of Premiere, Inc., who presented this award to just 18 hospitals nationwide for scoring top-performer status in all six of their measuring domains.
