Botsford Receives Award for Outstanding Patient Care

Botsford Hospital has again received recognition for embracing best practices to improve systems and our patients’ health.

Hospital representatives accepted the Governor’s Award for Improving Patient Safety and Quality of Care in the Hospital Setting at ceremonies in Grand Rapids last October.

Governor Jennifer M. Granholm says, “Award recipients are committed to providing Michigan citizens with high quality health care.”

Botsford Hospital received the award for improving patient care through the following:

  1. Appropriate Care Measure
  2. Surgical Care Improvement Project
  3. Emergency Department

Award standards align with improving care in a number of areas. Botsford selected areas that are considered top national health care concerns by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Multidisciplinary teams spearheaded Botsford’s improvement measures using proven, evidence-based practices.

“Together, our staff is demonstrating that we are providing the very best in medical treatment and care—the right care, each and every time,” says Paul E. LaCasse, D.O., MPH, Botsford Hospital’s president and CEO. “Our collaboration with MPRO, Michigan’s Medicare quality improvement
organization, helped enhance our efforts. We look at the Governor’s Award as vital third-party validation of our efforts in delivering high-quality, safe and effective care.”
