Awards & Recognition
For the fourth year in a row, West Palm Hospital
was named one of the nation’s top performers
on key quality measures by The Joint Commission,
the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations
in America. Only 14% of the nation’s hospitals
received this honor. The hospitals earning this
designation were recognized for evidence-based
clinical processes that are shown to improve
care for various conditions, including heart attack,
heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
This distinction is a direct result of our physicians’
and employees’ dedication to those we serve.
A recipient of the 2012 “Stroke Gold Plus” Quality
Achievement Award, West Palm Hospital was
recognized for its success in performance
achievement using evidence-based guidelines
to provide the best possible care to patients
through the American Heart Association/
American Stroke Association’s Get With The
Guidelines
®
Program. Get With The Guidelines
is a hospital-based, quality-improvement program
designed to ensure that hospitals consistently
care for heart and stroke patients utilizing the
most up-to-date guidelines and recommendations.
Additionally, the hospital has been awarded a
three-year term of accreditation in mammography
as the result of a recent review by the American
College of Radiology (ACR), which issued a Breast
Imaging Center of Excellence designation to the
hospital’s Breast Care Center. The ACR gold seal
of accreditation represents the highest level of
image quality and patient safety.
