Falls Church, Va. (Nov. 20, 2015) — HCA Virginia’s Dominion Hospital has been recognized among the 2014 Top Performers on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission – the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations in the United States.
This marks the second time that Dominion Hospital has earned this recognition, and they are one of 106 HCA hospitals in the country to earn this status. The hospital also was named a Top Performer in 2013.
“This recognition is a reflection of Dominion’s exceptional commitment to quality improvement and continuous efforts to contribute to better health outcomes for patients,” said Alan Eaks, CEO of Dominion Hospital. “We are proud to be named among the Top Performers as this recognizes the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of our health care teams.”
The Top Performers program recognizes hospitals that attain excellence on accountability measures related to evidence-based care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, inpatient psychiatric services, stroke, venous thromboembolism, immunization, and perinatal care.
“The Joint Commission’s Top Performers recognition uses objective data to determine the top hospitals, and we are proud that more than three-quarters of our hospitals have been recognized for their consistent achievement of high performance levels on key quality measures,” said Dr. Jonathan B. Perlin, HCA’s chief medical officer and president of clinical services. “We appreciate our colleagues across the country, whose dedication to evidence-based clinical practices helps ensure the best possible outcomes for the patients we’re privileged to treat.”
The Top Performers on Key Quality Measures program supports and provides an incentive for organizations to continually improve. The program also provides an opportunity for top-performing hospitals to celebrate their achievement of excellence in accountability measure performance.
