Top Performers on Key Quality Measures
September 15, 2011
Hernando-Pasco Counties, Florida – HCA Hernando/Pasco County hospitals—Community Hospital, the future Medical Center of Trinity, Oak Hill Hospital and Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point—were named among the nation’s top performers on key quality measures for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America.
The three HCA Hernando/Pasco hospitals are the only hospitals in Citrus, Hernando, and Pasco counties to achieve excellence on all four of the adult quality measures.
Out of 3,099 hospitals submitting accountability data to The Joint Commission, HCA Hernando/Pasco County hospitals are among only 405 hospitals earning the distinction of top performer on key quality measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Inclusion on the list is based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported during the previous calendar year. To be recognized as a top performer on key quality measures an organization must meet 95 percent or more on performance thresholds on accountability measure data. Community Hospital, Oak Hill Hospital, and Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point were recognized for achieving these performance thresholds for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
In addition to being included in the release of The Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, HCA Hernando/Pasco County hospitals will be recognized on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website (www.qualitycheck.org).
