Michigan Hospitals Receive Governor's Award

September 11, 2007 - Seventy-nine Michigan acute care hospitals received the Governor's Award for Improving Patient Safety and Quality of Care in the Hospital Setting.
In addition, 29 critical access hospitals statewide received the Governor's Award for Improving Patient Safety and Quality of Care in the Critical Access Hospital Setting. Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm presented the awards in partnership with MPRO, Michigan's quality improvement organization. The awards acknowledge excellence in hospital healthcare quality and safety. The governor also bestowed special recognition upon 18 Michigan hospitals as being "top-performers."
"These award recipients are committed to providing Michigan citizens with high quality healthcare," Granholm said. "The award is testament to the dedication of these hospitals that give patients the quality care they need and deserve each and every time."
Award criterion aligns with improving care in a number of clinical areas. Hospitals choose from pre-selected clinical areas. These clinical areas are designated as national healthcare priorities by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Acute care hospitals individually selected from one or more of the following areas: Appropriate Care Measure Award; Surgical Care Improvement Project Award; AV Fistula Award; and the Systems Improvement - Health Information Technology Award.
Critical access hospitals focused on intense work in one or more of the following clinical areas: Collecting and Reporting Quality Data Award; Clinical Performance and Reporting Award; Organizational Culture Change Award; and the Systems Improvement - Health Information Technology Award.
The awards are based on clinical data from 2006. While the governor and MPRO have partnered to honor hospitals since 2003, this marks the first time that the governor has recognized the top performing Michigan hospitals in the areas related to the award for improving patient safety and the quality of care in the hospital setting and critical access hospital setting. There were 18 hospitals selected as the top performers in each award topic and received special recognition from Granholm.
MPRO and the governor honored the hospitals with an award ceremony Sept. 10 at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo, MI.
