For its efforts to reduce the incidence of healthcare-acquired infections across its 12 hospitals, Memorial Hermann Healthcare System has been honored with the Texas Hospital Association’s 2011 Bill Aston Award for Quality in the Academic Large Teaching Hospital category. Established in 2010, the award recognizes a hospital’s measurable success in improving quality and patient outcomes through the sustained implementation of a national and/or state evidence-based patient care initiative.
“This is quite an impressive achievement,” says Dan Stultz, M.D., FACP, FACHE, and president and chief executive officer of the Texas Hospital Association. “Memorial Hermann is a role model for other large systems, and this prestigious award recognizes the system for its discipline and commitment to improving patient care.”
The Memorial Hermann Healthcare System includes more than 20,000 employees across 12 hospitals, including Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. To learn more, visit www.memorialhermann.org. Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
