Three Johns Hopkins Medicine Hospitals Recognized by the Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care for Their Commitment to Quality Improvement

Release Date: September 4, 2014

Three Johns Hopkins Medicine hospitals have been awarded the 2014 Excellence Award for Quality Improvement in Hospitals from the Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care, an independent, nonprofit health care quality improvement organization. The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore and Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., each earned the distinction.

The award honors individual hospitals that excel in patient safety and quality improvement. To receive this prestigious award, a hospital must meet specific performance improvement criteria on 14 measures in four national inpatient clinical areas: acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure, surgical care improvement and pneumonia.

This is the second consecutive year that The Johns Hopkins Hospital has been honored. “We are pleased to again receive this esteemed award,” says Peter J. Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D., Johns Hopkins Medicine’s senior vice president for patient safety and quality. “Our success represents the strong commitment of our entire organization to give the very best care for our patients and to advance the science for how to improve patient safety and quality of care.”
