LRMC honored for care provided

POSTED: March 22, 2007 5:12 a.m.
When it comes to choosing a hospital, quality counts, and Liberty Regional Medical Center was recently called among the best by the Georgia Hospital Association’s long standing Performance Measuring System, CARE.
Liberty Regional earned a “Top Care” award, GHA’s gold standard in patient care, for maintaining its standing in the top quartile of its peer group for at least three years.
The award represents Liberty Regional’s sustained improvement and performance in six key areas of clinical quality, patient safety, and financial management.
“The CARE Hospital award is reflective of Liberty Regional Medical Center’s commitment to providing safe, effective, patient-centered healthcare,” said GHA Executive Vice President Vi Naylor. “The hospital’s leadership and staff have worked together to create a culture that emphasizes both clinical excellence and operational efficiency.”
Liberty Regional’s CEO, Scott Kroell said, “Ensuring patient safety and quality of care is a part of everyone’s job at Liberty Regional Medical Center. We are proud of our staff’s work in this area and are honored to receive this prestigious award from CARE in acknowledgment of our efforts. We see this award not as an end point, but as an important milestone in an ongoing journey. We must be vigilant and continuously strive to identify proven, evidence-based practices that will enable us to provide the safest environment and best possible care for our community.”
