LAS VEGAS — Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital was one of two hospitals honored this year by HealthInsight, a nonprofit, community-based health care collaborative.
The 2017 HealthInsight Quality Award hospital recipients were recognized “for their high performance on quality of care outcome measures and patient satisfaction. “
The other recipient was Renown South Meadows Medical Center in Reno.
The awards were presented at the 57th Annual Nevada Hospital Association meeting Sept. 9 at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe.
HealthInsight Quality Award hospital recipients are selected based on their performance on healthcare-associated infections, patient experience of hospital care, 30-day hospital-wide readmissions, and mortality measures.
“We are extremely pleased to recognize these hospitals for their excellence in performance,” said Deborah Huber, HealthInsight Nevada’s executive director. “This level of achievement requires strong leadership and a dedication to quality by all members of the health care team.”
NNRH received an overall performance rating of 83 percent, the second highest in the state.
