ROSE MEDICAL CENTER EARNS “TOP PERFORMER ON KEY QUALITY MEASURES®” RECOGNITION FROM THE JOINT COMMISSION FOR FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW
DENVER – Nov. 13, 2014 – Rose Medical Center today was named a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States. Rose was recognized as part of The Joint Commission’s 2014 annual report “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care. Rose is one of 1,224 hospitals in the United States to achieve the 2013 Top Performer distinction
“Our vision at Rose is to provide insanely great care for every person, every time,” said Kenneth Feiler, President and CEO at Rose Medical Center. “This means doing what is right for our patients and providing safe and effective care. We have made a commitment to accreditation and evidence-based practices, and we are honored to have received this recognition from The Joint Commission every year since they started the program, four years ago.”
The Top Performer program recognizes hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, stroke, venous thromboembolism and perinatal care, as well as for inpatient psychiatric services and immunizations.
This is the fourth year Rose has been recognized as a Top Performer, and Rose is one of only of 147 hospitals to achieve the Top Performer distinction for the past four consecutive years.
To be a 2013 Top Performer, hospitals had to meet three performance criteria based on 2013 accountability measure data, including:
- Achieving cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures;
- Achieving performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure where there were at least 30 denominator cases; and
- Having at least one core measure set that had a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and (within that measure set) all applicable individual accountability measures had a performance rate of 95 percent or above.
“Delivering the right treatment in the right way at the right time is a cornerstone of high-quality health care. I commend the efforts of Rose Medical Center for their excellent performance on the use of evidence-based interventions,” said Mark R. Chassin, M.D., FACP, M.P.P., M.P.H., president and CEO, The Joint Commission.
