ARCHBOLD NAMED A TOP HOSPITAL IN GEORGIA
For the seventh year in a row, Georgia Trend Magazine has named Archbold Memorial Hospital a Top Georgia Hospital.
The information used to compile the rankings was based on publicly reported data acquired from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) which administers the nation’s Medicare and Medicaid programs.
The data analyzed specifically relates to quality of care, patient satisfaction, mortality, readmission statistics and data on hospital acquired infections and conditions.
Archbold’s sustained focus on overall quality of care earned the hospital additional recognitions in 2016.
The hospital earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for healthcare quality and safety in hospitals. Archbold was also recognized by Healthgrades in 2016 with a Patient Safety Excellence Award. The award is a designation given to hospitals that rank in the top 10% in the nation for patient safety—preventing infections, medical errors and other complications based on 14 serious, potentially preventable adverse events.
“Providing our patients quality healthcare remains a top priority at Archbold,” said Perry Mustian, Archbold president and CEO. “Our staff and physicians are dedicated to making Archbold a great place for patients to receive healthcare. It’s always rewarding to be recognized for those efforts. And to be named among the best in the state for what we do is truly a reflection of the sustained focus our health system places on high-quality, patient-focused care and patient safety.”
