McLeod Health Clarendon honored with Top Performer Award

Posted

McLeod Health Clarendon was recently recognized with the Top Performer Award for Inpatient Services - Communication about Medications, according to a news release from McLeod Health. According to the release, Top Performer Awards are presented to facilities that have scored in the 100th percentile in a category.

"It is exciting that our patient satisfaction survey results have earned our hospitals and physicians such prestigious recognition," said Cathy Lee, vice president of service excellence for McLeod Health. "However, scores are not the true reason we celebrate. What makes these awards meaningful is the fact that our doctors, nurses and staff make the needs of our patients their No. 1 priority. The survey scores simply reflect that patient-centered philosophy."

"It is an honor to recognize the hospitals and physicians of McLeod Health with these Excellence in Healthcare Awards for their deserving work," said Joe M. Inguanzo, Ph.D., president and CEO of Professional Research Consultants, which recognized the hospital. "It takes true dedication and determination to achieve this level of excellence in health care, and McLeod Health has shown their commitment to making their hospitals a better place to work, a better place to practice medicine and a better place for patients to be treated."

For 18 years, PRC's annual Excellence in Healthcare Conference has brought together hundreds of healthcare leaders to focus on transforming the patient experience. The awards recognize organizations and individuals who achieve excellence throughout the year by improving patient experiences, healthcare employee engagement and/or physician alignment and engagement based on surveys of their patients.
