Awards

Four separate awards were recently presented to Perham Health recognizing a commitment to patient satisfaction and excellence in health care.

“Ensuring patients and families receive the best quality of care is a well-coordinated effort throughout the entire hospital,” explains Mary Mayer, Director of Quality Management at Perham Health. “From housekeeping to leadership, everyone is a critical part of our team. The way we communicate and our culture of safety help to prevent errors and improve our patients’ outcome of care.”

Perham Health’s Partners in Care Council, which includes patients, community members, and families, also plays an important role in helping the hospital maintain the highest level of care. Patients and families are members of the hospital’s internal quality and patient safety committees, as well as other committees throughout the hospital where they provide feedback and recommendations to improve care.

“We are very proud to receive these awards,” Mayer remarks. “Everyone throughout our organization is committed to quality care and patient safety. They demonstrate that commitment each day.”

Partnership for Excellence Award

Awarded by the Minnesota Hospital Association

This is awarded to hospitals reaching the superior level of performance in the Medicare Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) 2.0 for quality.

“Our low infection rates, readmission rates, as well as many other quality and patient safety initiatives have shown how a team effort can lead to success and our patients’ satisfaction,” says Mayer. “Staff members’ willingness to share patient safety concerns with leadership has been instrumental in reducing errors.”

Patient Safety Excellence Award

Awarded by the Minnesota Hospital Association

Hospitals that achieve outstanding performance in MHA’s Partnership for Patients Campaign by achieving six or more patient safety criteria and three or more patient engagement criteria are awarded the Patient Safety Excellence Award.

The Minnesota Hospital Association HEN 2.0 is working to reduce hospital-acquired conditions by 40 percent and readmissions by 20 percent. MHA created this award to acknowledge the hard work and resources being devoted by hospitals to improve patient safety.

Top Performing Rural Health Hospital

Awarded by the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health

Top performing rural hospitals are awarded this distinction based on four criteria: excellence in quality, excellence in outcomes, excellence in patient satisfaction, and excellence in financial strength. The results have been determined through the Hospital Strength INDEX, the industry’s most objective and comprehensive assessment of rural hospital performance.

Perham Health was also recognized for Excellence in Outcomes. The award reflects Perham Health’s commitment to providing high-quality, affordable health care to patients in a rural community.
