Labette Health announced last week their notification of receiving the 2016 quality award rankings from CareChex—a division of Comparion, an independent quality ratings group. These rankings listed Labette Health as receiving eleven top 10 percent rankings, including:
- Top 10 percent in the State for: Overall Hospital Care, Overall Medical Care, Overall Surgical Care, Cardiac Care, Pulmonary Care and Joint Replacement
- Top 10 percent in the Midwest for: Overall Hospital Care, Joint Replacement and Major Orthopedic Surgery
- Top 10 percent in the Nation for: Joint Replacement and Major Orthopedic Surgery
"These awards reflect the commitment of our medical staff, clinical staff, and support staff to quality and patient safety," said Brian Williams, Labette Health CEO. "At Labette Health, you and your family can receive nationally ranked care close to home," added Williams.
CareChex is a division of Comparion Analytics—one of the nation's largest privately-held healthcare information services companies. CareChex provides clinical, financial and patient satisfaction findings to consumers, providers and purchasers of U.S. medical care. Unlike other publicly available hospital quality ratings, CareChex provides a composite evaluation of all components of medical quality including process of care, outcomes of care and patient satisfaction.
"Our excellent rankings are a testament to our employees and physicians' teamwork and their dedication to delivering safe, high quality care to every patient they serve," said Labette Health's Quality Director, Tereasa DeMeritt, MSN, APRN-NPc.
