Feb 12, 2020

Hialeah, Fla. (November 25, 2015) – Palmetto General Hospital is featured in The Joint Commission’s 2015 annual report, “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” as a 2014 Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®. The hospital achieved this distinction for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, venous thromboembolism, stroke and perinatal.

“We are proud to receive this prestigious achievement for the third consecutive year,” said Ana Mederos, chief executive officer. “It would not have been possible without the dedication and skill of our entire team of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals who enhance the outstanding care and services we provide to our patients every day.”

The Top Performer program recognizes hospitals for improving performance on evidence-based interventions that increase the chances of healthy outcomes for patients with certain conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, stroke, venous thromboembolism, perinatal, immunization, tobacco treatment and substance use.

To be a 2014 Top Performer, Palmetto General Hospital had to meet three performance criteria based on 2014 accountability measure data, including:

  • Achieving a cumulative performance rate of 95 percent or more across all reported accountability measures;
  • Achieving a performance rate of 95 percent or more on each and every reported accountability measure with at least 30 denominator cases; and
  • Having at least one core measure set that had a composite rate of 95 percent or more, and within that measure set – all application individual accountability measures had a performance rate of 95 percent or more.
