Rutland Regional Wins Studer Group’s Excellence in Patient Care Award

Rutland Regional Medical Center was chosen to receive an Excellence in Patient Care award given by outcomes firm Studer Group®.  The award was presented at the What’s Right in Health Care® conference held in Atlanta, Georgia late October. Studer Group® gives its Excellence in Patient Care awards to select partners based on very high scores in a variety of categories. Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Department was selected based on the amount of substantial improvements in front-end operations for arriving Emergency patients when measured within their organization over the last couple of years. The Emergency Department’s outstanding results ranked them among the highest from a database of over 850 organizations coached by Studer Group®.

The award was received by Rutland Regional Emergency Department leaders Dr. Todd Gregory, Medical Director; Tom Rounds, BSN, RN, Director; and Stacy Oxley, RN, Clinical Nurse Manager. Attendees of the What’s Right in Health Care® conference learn how to address the hard-hitting topics and concerns faced by healthcare organizations, including how to create a viable future in these challenging times.

 

“Excellence in Patient Care Award” represents an early win for both the Emergency Department Staff and the community of Rutland. We have embraced change to respond to the external operating environment and because adopting new evidence-based practices will deliver better clinical and quality outcomes for our patients! It was an incredible honor to walk the national stage with representatives of our physician and nursing leadership team. We have more hard work ahead and are all committed to Excellence in the Emergency Department!” Tom Rounds, Emergency Department Director.
