Thursday, May 09, 2013 - Hospital Engagement Network Improvement Leadership Award

Health care organizations that selected VHA as their Hospital Engagement Network supporting CMS’ Partnership for Patients initiative were eligible for VHA’s first HEN Improvement Leadership Award. HENs commit to reduce select Hospital-Acquired Conditions by 40 percent and preventable readmissions by 20 percent over a three-year period. Winners in this category showed substantial improvement on their baseline performance measures in at least one of 10 patient safety areas of focus.

The following VHA HEN participants are being recognized for top overall performance and improvement activity in 2012:


  • Baptist Medical Center South, Montgomery, Ala.
  • Doctors Hospital, Coral Gables, Fla.
  • Grady General Hospital, Cairo, Ga.
  • INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center, Oklahoma City, Okla.
  • INTEGRIS Canadian Valley Hospital, Yukon, Okla.
  • Jamestown Regional Medical Center, Jamestown, N.D.
  • Stafford Hospital, Stafford, Va.
  • Stormont-Vail HealthCare, Topeka, Kan.
  • Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, Tallahassee, Fla.
  • West Kendall Baptist Hospital, Miami, Fla.

"The leaders and staff in these organizations have shown their dedication to providing not only consistently high levels of clinical care but also continually improving that performance to produce better outcomes for their patients,” said Steve Miff, PhD, VHA’s senior vice president for Clinical and Care Delivery Solutions. “Since the passing of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the health care industry has moved quickly to establish and meet performance quality metrics and align care protocol. We are especially proud of these VHA organizations for exceptional performance against national key indicators.”
