Adventist HealthCare Hospitals Recognized as National Top Performers for Providing High Quality, Evidence-based Care
Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville and Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park – both part of the Adventist HealthCare system – were named Top Performers on Key Quality Measures® by The Joint Commission. The hospitals are among 16 in Maryland to earn this national distinction for 2012 performance – and two of nine state hospitals that demonstrated excellence in processes to improve care for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgery.
In addition, Hackettstown Regional Medical Center in Hackettstown, New Jersey – also part of Adventist HealthCare – received recognition as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® for 2012. The Joint Commission is the leading accreditor of health-care organizations in the country.
“We are honored to be recognized nationally for the high quality, complex care we provide to our communities,” said William G. “Bill” Robertson, president and CEO of Adventist HealthCare, the first and largest provider of health care in Montgomery County, Md.
Selecting a Hospital to Receive Care
Quality measures provide a good snapshot of the quality of care that hospitals give; however, a hospital's quality is more than just its scores. You can use this information in addition to discussions with your health care provider and family in choosing a hospital to receive care for your particular condition.
