GILLETTE, WY – Campbell County Health (CCH) was presented with a
Hospital Quality Award from
Mountain-Pacific Quality Health during the
Wyoming Hospital AssociationAnnual Meeting and Convention in Cheyenne on September 7, 2016.
CCH was awarded the Commitment to Quality Award for its outstanding performance
in giving excellent care. All recipients had to reach six quality goals
in patient satisfaction, clinical care, and patient and family engagement
The award also recognizes Campbell County Health’s strong leadership
support for quality and patient safety.
“Previously hospitals were just picked for this award, and now for
the first time they have to make the effort to apply,” said Sue
Ullrich, Director of Quality and Risk Management. “And the focus
has changed to look more at the patient experience and how hospitals involve
patients and families in care. We have a very active Patient and Family
Advisory Council (PFAC) to help us get the patient’s perspective,
and we’ve made a commitment to bedside reporting, where caregivers
give information about the plan of care for each day to the patient and
family in their hospital room.”
Only six Wyoming hospitals were qualified to receive the Commitment to
Quality Award this year and Campbell County Health is proud to be one
of the recipients.
