Lourdes Earns Top Performer Recognition from the Joint Commission

Posted on January 25, 2016

The Joint Commission has named Lourdes Medical Center as a 2014 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®.

Lourdes is one of only 1,043 hospitals in the United States to achieve this distinction based on excellence in accountability measure performance.

The hospital was recognized for its achievement in the Surgical Care 2014 accountability measure.

In order to be named a Top Performer, a hospital must:

• Achieve cumulative performance of 95 percent or above across all reported accountability measures;
• Achieve performance of 95 percent or above on each and every reported accountability measure with at least 30 denominator cases; and
• Have at least one core measure set that had a composite rate of 95 percent or above, and within that measure set, achieve a performance rate of 95 percent or above on all applicable individual accountability measures.

“We have made it a top priority at Lourdes to address patient safety and quality of care by improving upon evidence-based care processes that are shown to be the best treatments for certain conditions. We are proud to be named a Top Performer and thank our entire hospital staff and partnering providers for their dedication, knowledge and teamwork.” – John Serle, Lourdes CEO
