Healthgrades, the leading online resource for comprehensive information
about hospitals and physicians, has awarded Roxborough Memorial Hospital
with the 2015 Patient Safety Excellence Award™. One of only 467
hospitals across the nation to be recognized, the distinction places Roxborough
Memorial Hospital within the top 10% of all hospitals evaluated for their
excellent performance in safeguarding patients from serious, potentially
preventable complications during their hospital stays. In terms of patient
safety, Healthgrades found that Patient Safety Award recipients all performed
higher in clinical outcomes than non-recipients for all the conditions
and procedures evaluated.
Said Peter Adamo, Roxborough Memorial Hospital CEO, "We are entrusted
with the care of many lives each day. Patient safety is at the core of
everything our physicians, our nurses and our entire staff do. We are
honored to be recognized with this prestigious distinction. I thank our
entire staff for their commitment to our community".
