CPH earns praise from The Joint Commission

Posted: September 15, 2011 - 7:40am

Central Peninsula Hospital has been recognized by one of the leading accreditors of health care organizations in America for two key quality measures, according to a news release.

The Joint Commission recently listed the hospital as a top performer in the surgical care and pneumonia categories. Other categories included heart attacks, heart failure, and children’s asthma, which the hospital did not receive recognition on from the organization.

CPH was, however, the only hospital in Alaska to earn such recognition from The Joint Commission, according to a news release, and was one of only 405 hospitals and critical access hospitals across the nation to earn a top performer category. Inclusion on the list is based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to the commission during the previous calendar year, according to the release.

“We understand that what matters most to patients at Central Peninsula Hospital is safe, effective care,” said CPH CEO Ryan Smith in the release. “That’s why CPH has made a commitment to accreditation and to positive patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes. CPH is proud to be named to the list of The Joint Commission’s top performers on key quality measures.”

In addition to being included in the release of The Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, CPH will also be recognized on the organization’s quality check website, www.qualitycheck.org.
