Baptist Golden Triangle, Baptist North Mississippi, Baptist Union County and Baptist Booneville were named Top Performers on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America.
The Joint Commission recognized the hospitals for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for a number of conditions, including heart attack, pneumonia, surgery and stroke.
Baptist Golden Triangle, Baptist North Mississippi, Baptist Union County and Baptist Booneville are four of 1,099 hospitals in the U.S. earning the distinction of Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. The list of Top Performer organizations increased by 77 percent from last year, and it represents 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals reporting accountability measure performance data for 2012.
“These four hospitals and all the Top Performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality improvement, and they should be proud of their achievement,” says Mark R. Chassin, M.D., president and chief executive officer of The Joint Commission. “We have much to celebrate this year. Nearly half of our accredited hospitals have attained or nearly attained the Top Performer distinction. This truly shows that we are approaching a tipping point in hospital quality performance that will directly contribute to better health outcomes for patients.”
