DECEMBER 4, 2007 in RICHMOND, VIRGINIA for EXCELLENCE in QUALITY IMPROVEMENT MEASURES
PLATINUM ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:Buchanan General Hospital was among the top 10% of all hospitals in Virginia who received the Platinum Achievement Award for demonstrating Excellence in sustaining levels in one or multiple clinical areas of Acute Myocardial Infarction (heart attack), Heart Failure, and Pneumonia Quality Care Measures.
The Platinum Achievement Award represents benchmark hospitals in Virginia.
GOLD ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:The Gold Achievement Award represents hospitals in Virginia that achieved their goals in the treatment of Acute Myocardial Infarction (heart attack), Heart Failure and Pneumonia, sustaining their levels for an extended period of time.
SILVER ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:The Silver Achievement Award was received in recognition for reporting quality measures data, and for passing validation four consecutive quarters.
As quality of care becomes more transparent, hospitals are pushed to perform at a higher level of quality. To drive our quality improvements, we no longer accept being average, or just above average.
The Platinum, Gold and Silver Achievement Awards reflect the commitment made by our Physicians, Quality Management Team, and Clinical Staff to provide a higher level of quality health care services to the communities we serve.
