Morris Hospital was recently recognized nationally for patient safety and experience.
Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers has been recognized for two distinctions in quality excellence from Healthgrades: the 2019 Patient Safety Excellence Award and the 2019 Outstanding Patient Experience Award.
Out of more than 4,500 hospitals evaluated for patient safety and experience across the country, Morris Hospital is one of 77 hospitals that achieved both distinctions from Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals.
Morris Hospital is among the top 2% of eligible hospitals in the nation to receive both of the awards, said public relations manager Janet Long.
The Patient Safety Excellence Award recipients demonstrated excellent performance in safety for patients in the Medicare population during the study period 2015 to 2017.
The Outstanding Patient Experience Award evaluated experience performance by applying a scoring methodology to 9 patient experience measures, using data collected from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems patient survey conducted by all hospitals.
Dr. Brad Bowman, chief medical officer of Healthgrades, said consumers will be able to use this information to feel confident when making important decisions about the care they receive.
