The Good Samaritan Hospital has been chosen to receive an Excellence in Patient Care award given by outcomes firm Studer Group®. The hospital will receive the award—which was presented at the 11th annual What’s Right in Health Care® conference—based on their exemplary Core Measures scores.
Studer Group® gives its Excellence in Patient Care
awards to select partners based on various categories. The Good
Samaritan Hospital was selected based on the amount their Core Measures
scores increased from 3rd quarter of 2010-2nd quarter 2011 to 3rd quarter 2011-2nd
quarter 2012. The difference in each Core Measure was taken and The
Good Samaritan Hospital had one of the largest positive improvements,
distinguishing them as “most improved” from a database of over 850
organizations coached by Studer Group.
“It is a team
effort to make the types of changes that result in the outcomes that are
recognized by this award,” said Good Samaritan Vice President for
Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer Jacquelyn Gould, MS, RN,
NEA-BC. “We are very proud of the hard work of our physicians and
employees who deliver excellent patient care. Our patients are the real
winners in this process.”
