Grady General Hospital makes quality honor roll

Grady General Hospital in Cairo recently received numerous awards for its performance.
Grady General has been named to the Georgia Hospital Association’s Partnership for Health and Accountability Core Measures Honor Roll.
Grady General is one of 23 hospitals in Georgia to be placed in the Trustee category, one of the highest on the list. The honor roll is based on clinical data provided by the federal Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, which administers the nation’s Medicare and Medicaid programs. The data was collected from October 2012 to September 2013.
“We are pleased to recognize Grady General’s commitment to patient safety,” said Earl V. Rogers, president of the Georgia Hospital Association. “Compliance with these important core measures ensures that every patient receives the best, most effective health care possible.”
Hospitals are required to submit care data to the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, which details how well a hospital’s caregivers adhere to a list of Value-Based Purchasing core measures. These measures are the clinical processes of care that are known to be the most effective methods of treatment for surgical patients and patients who have suffered heart attacks, pneumonia and heart failure.
“Our staff is committed to providing our community with the highest standard of care,” said Ken Rhudy, administrator at Grady General. “We are honored to be recognized for our efforts in making Grady General Hospital a healthcare leader in our region.”
Grady General’s overall quality of care has earned the hospital numerous recognitions in recent months.
Grady General was named to Georgia Trend’s 2013 list of Top Hospitals in the state, a ranking based on publicly available information on quality of care, patient satisfaction, mortality and readmission statistics and data on hospital-acquired infections and conditions. The hospital was also awarded two Quality and Patient Safety Awards from the Partnership for Health and Accountability, a division of the Georgia Hospital Association, and presented with a Georgia Hospital Association Circle of Excellence Award, an honor given to hospitals and health systems that have demonstrated a sustained commitment to quality and patient safety as evidenced by not only winning a patient safety award in 2013, but also by earning three or more Partnership for Health and Accountability patient safety awards within the previous five years.
