Peace Harbor Medical Center named top performer


PeaceHealth Peace Harbor Medical Center was recently recognized as a Best Practices Top Performer by the Oregon Rural Healthcare Quality Network, which is comprised of Oregon's Critical Access Hospitals. The recognition is part of a multi-state Quality Health Indicators (QHi) performance benchmarking program.
For the second consecutive year, Peace Harbor is the co-recipient of the Network's overall "top performing hospital" for exemplary performance in minimizing Hospital Acquired Infections; Pneumonia Immunizations; and Discharge Instructions for Patients Admitted with a Diagnosis of Heart Failure. It was the only facility in the state that qualified as a top performer in three of four clinical measures.
"It's an impressive achievement to be named a Best Practices Top Performer because we know it's based on our own performance and compared to other small rural hospitals who are working just as hard as we are to deliver quality care to their patients and community," said Rick Yecny, Peace Harbor CEO and Chief Mission Officer.
More than 310 small rural hospitals in 15 states utilize QHi.
