Hospital receives prestigious Delmarva Foundation Award
0

I am so pleased to announce that our hospital was presented with the 2013 Delmarva Foundation Excellence Award for Quality Improvement.

This prestigious award, given by the Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care, honors hospitals that excel in patient safety and quality improvement. To receive this award, we had to meet specific performance improvement criteria on 14 measures in four national inpatient clinical areas: acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, surgical care improvement and pneumonia.

Columbus Giles, M.D., the Delmarva Foundation’s chief medical officer, presented us with the award on August 26 and I was so glad that staff members representing the many departments that helped to achieve this award were in attendance. It was truly a team effort and everyone from nursing and quality improvement to physicians and support staff were instrumental in earning this award.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality care for our communities and this award is yet another example of our staff’s dedication to our patients. I am proud of each and every staff member who helped us reach this achievement.
