Ashley County Medical Center has been selected to receive an Excellence in Patient Care award presented by Studer Group, a Huron Healthcare solution.

Ashley County Medical Center is being recognized for exemplary results related to communication with nurses as measured by the HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey. Organizations receiving this award achieved a ranking at or above the 90th percentile for patients discharged in 2015 as measured by the HCAHPS patient experience survey required by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Excellence in Patient Care awards are presented annually to a select group of organizations from Studer Group’s partner-base of hospitals, health systems and physician organizations. To be eligible for an award, an organization must demonstrate outstanding performance and achievement in patient care, employee engagement or physician engagement.

The award was presented at What’s Right in Health Care®, an annual healthcare best practices conference, which was held Aug. 2-4, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois and attracted administrative and clinical healthcare professionals from the U.S., Canada and Australia.

What’s Right in Health Care® aims to improve healthcare for patients, physicians and staff through peer-to-peer sharing of leading practices. Presenters shared the strategies and tactics contributing to their top results in areas such as patient safety, emergency department wait times and employee satisfaction.
