Grimes County’s CHI St Joseph location has been named an award finalist.
Premier Inc, a health care improvement company, awarded CHI St. Joseph Regional Hospital in Bryan with the Premier HIIN Award for Excellence in Patient Safety across the Board for excellence in 13 patient safety adverse event areas of focus. Meanwhile, Grimes Hospital was named a TPT Quest Award Finalist for top performance in its peer group.
Premier recognized Regional and the Grimes Hospital during an awards ceremony held at its annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition, held June 19-21 in Nashville.
Premier assessed Grimes’ performance in five dimensions of QUEST2020™ collaborative, which is a three year program designed to help health systems connect with peers, evidence-based practices and data. Those categories include affordability, effective care and coordination, prevention and treatment for leading causes of mortality, person and family experience and patient safety.
President of CHI St Joseph Theron Park says the awards “recognize our efforts to hard-wire evidence-based practices into our day-to-day operations to ensure delivery of safe, reliable care that is free from harm for every patient, every time.”
