SwedishAmerican Receives Excellence in Healthcare Award

SwedishAmerican Hospital is proud to announce that it was recently recognized as a four-star top performer by the national healthcare research leader, Professional Research Consultants, Inc. (PRC). SwedishAmerican will be honored with the award for superior achievement by its “Senior Administration Leadership” during the 2016 Excellence in Healthcare Conference in Miami, Florida in mid-May. This recognition emerged from a Physician Engagement and Alignment Study conducted in November 2015.

The Excellence in Healthcare Awards recognize organizations and individuals who achieve excellence throughout the year by improving patient experiences, healthcare employee engagement and/or physician alignment and engagement based on surveys of their physicians.

“It is an honor to receive this award,” says SwedishAmerican President & CEO Dr. Bill Gorski. “I want to thank our administrative leadership team and physician partners for making this award happen. It takes true dedication and determination to achieve this level of excellence in healthcare.”

The Excellence in Healthcare Conference has brought together hundreds of healthcare leaders to celebrate their work to transform the patient experience. With a shared focus on excellence and a commitment to improve the performance of healthcare organizations, PRC & The Institute for Healthcare Excellence (IHE) teamed up to recognize the outstanding award recipients at the 2016 Excellence in Healthcare Conference.
