Only about two percent of hospitals in the United States earn the prestigious 100 SafeCare Hospitals® distinction, and the top 50 hospitals represent the top one percent of U.S. hospitals. Recently, Natchitoches Regional Medical Center was named in that Top 1% for 2018 .“While all US hospitals achieving improvements deserve recognition,” says Dr. Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, Chairman and CEO of The SafeCare Group, “Those achieving 100 SafeCare Hospitals distinction are leading the way. Congratulations to Natchitoches Regional Medical Center on achieving within the top 50, 100 SafeCare Hospitals.”
100 SafeCare Hospitals represent the nation’s top performing hospitals in evidence-based metrics of Medical and Surgical Infections, 30-Day Mortality rates, Complications rates for Medical and Surgical Care, Patient Satisfaction, 30-Day Medical and Surgical Readmissions, and overall value. NRMC has demonstrated this exemplary level of performance in the comprehensive, evidence-based metrics of the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) value-based program (HVBP), readmissions reduction program (HRRP), and acquired complications reduction program (HACRP).
“I congratulate every member of our hospital team on this outstanding accomplishment,” Kirk Soileau, Chief Executive Officer of NRMC said. “From the huddles our Associates hold to discuss patient care and patient safety to the quality initiatives of our Physicians, great things are happening at NRMC, and this recognition highlights the teamwork and commitment it takes to achieve good patient outcomes and patient safety. My thanks to our team for their vision and commitment and most importantly for the excellent care they provide our patients,” Soileau added.
