“This award highlights Texas Health Southwest’s industry leading efforts to continuously improve patient safety and enhance care delivery,” said Brett McClung, the hospital’s president.
Twenty healthcare systems representing 98 hospitals are members of AEIX, an excess liability risk retention group managed by Premier Insurance Management Services Inc. Representatives of all healthcare entities within these systems were eligible to apply for the award.
Premier also recognized Texas Health Southwest and five other Texas Health Resources hospitals as top performers in the QUEST: High Performing Hospitals collaborative, a nationwide performance improvement project for their efforts in saving lives, safely reducing the cost of care and delivering the most reliable and effective care. Texas Health hospitals in Arlington, Azle, Cleburne, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, and Stephenville, and Southwest Fort Worth were honored. The hospitals have participated for all three years of the project and received honorable mention recognition in Premier’s QUEST Award for High Value Healthcare program.
