Mount Sinai Hospitals Earn "Top Performer" Designations from The Joint Commission
Friday, November 14, 2014
We are very proud to announce that The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States, has designated Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, and Mount Sinai Roosevelt as 2013 “Top Performers on Key Quality Measures.” The Joint Commission’s Top Performer program recognizes health care institutions for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the likelihood of good medical outcomes for patients with certain conditions.
As “Top Performers,” Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, and Mount Sinai Roosevelt will be included in The Joint Commission’s America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety, an online annual report found at http://bit.ly/1xMz5qM, and also on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check® website.
The Mount Sinai Health System is deeply committed to delivering the highest quality care and ensuring patient health and safety, and we are honored that The Joint Commission has recognized our efforts. They found that our hospitals attained and sustained excellence in the following accountability measures: research; accuracy of the care process; proximity of the care process to patient health outcomes; and adverse effects in heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, and surgical care.
Congratulations to everyone in the Mount Sinai Health System who made this recognition possible. The Joint Commission has applauded your hard work and dedication to quality, patient safety, and service.
