Manchester Memorial Hospital recognized by Premier, Inc. for safe, efficient and effective care
San Antonio – Premier, Inc. has recognized Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH) with a QUEST® Award for High-value Healthcare Citation of Merit for delivering high-quality, cost-effective healthcare.
Only 61 hospitals received a Citation of Merit for achieving top performance in any four of the six areas measured in Premier’s QUEST collaborative, including harm, mortality, readmissions, costs, patient experience and evidence-based care.
Manchester Memorial Hospital was honored during Premier’s annual Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio. “Participation in this collaborative reinforces our commitment to reliably deliver the best care experience to the communities we serve,” said Erika Skula, CEO of the hospital. “We’re proud to receive a Citation of Merit for the QUEST Award as we continue down our path of improving patient outcomes.”
QUEST is a performance improvement collaborative of approximately 350 hospitals working to make healthcare safer, more efficient and consistently effective. Approximately 330 QUEST hospitals were eligible for the QUEST Award for High-value Healthcare.
Susan DeVore, Premier President and CEO said, “QUEST hospitals have a really fresh perspective on the state of healthcare today, which they’re using to rethink the way care is provided and design innovative changes that impact our future. It’s no easy task for health systems to do this on their own, so they work together to capitalize on the power of information. Our vision is to outperform this industry together, on our own terms, which is exactly what Manchester Memorial Hospital is doing. Premier congratulates them for the fantastic achievements they’ve made.”
