Methodist Mansfield Medical Center was named among the top performers on key quality measures by the Joint Commission, according to a recent release by Methodist Mansfield. The hospital achieved "exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions." The processes focus on care for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and stroke.
The hospital achieved a performance grade of 95 percent or above on a single, composite score that includes all the accountability measures for which data is reported to the Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization whose accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide, according to the release.
This is the second year in a row the hospital hit this milestone.
“Receiving this designation from the Joint Commission is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of our valued employees,” said John Phillips, president of Methodist Mansfield, in the release. “We understand that what matters most to patients is safe, effective care, and our goal is to always provide compassionate, quality health care to our patients. This designation proves our commitment to that goal.”
The Top Performers on key quality measures program is designed to be an incentive for achieving excellence on accountability measures and support organizations in their quest to improve performance. It also provides an opportunity for all recognized hospitals to celebrate their achievement.
Methodist Mansfield was also recognized as a Top Performer in the 2012 and 2011 calendar years for achievements with heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and stroke measure sets, and is also recognized on the quality check website, qualitycheck.org.
Founded in 1951, the Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.
