The Innovation Hub at Sibley Memorial Hospital has been named to Becker’s Hospital Review 2016 edition of 50 Hospitals with Innovation Programs.
According to Becker’s Hospital Review, “while some hospitals on this list have a specific center dedicated to innovation and others have an established commercialization arm with its own governing board, they all demonstrate a commitment to bettering health care by tackling the biggest challenges facing patient care and care delivery.”
Becker’s Hospital Review first published this list in 2015, but this is the first time it has featured 50 hospitals. The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team considered nominations and conducted editorial research to select the hospitals included on this list.
“Sibley is in the middle of a culture change that’s unprecedented in the hospital’s 125-year history and the Innovation Hub is helping drive that change,” said Nick Dawson, executive director of the Sibley Memorial Hospital Innovation Hub. “We’re giving people the opportunity, space, encouragement, tools and coaching to listen to the needs of people, imagine better solutions and do things quickly to make those solutions real. It’s inherently human-centered. We’re giving everyone from the front line to the executive suite the tools and confidence to innovate. That’s what true innovation is all about.”
