Belton hospital receives patient safety award

Belton Regional Medical Center announced Tuesday that it received the Healthgrades 2017 Patient Safety Excellence Award, a designation that recognizes superior performance in hospitals that have prevented the occurrence of serious, potentially avoidable complications for patients during hospital stays. The distinction places Belton Regional Medical Center among the top 10 percent of all short-term acute care hospitals reporting patient safety data for its excellent performance as evaluated by Healthgrades, a leading online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

During the study period from 2013-2015, Healthgrades 2017 Patient Safety Excellence Award recipient hospitals demonstrated excellent performance in safety provided for patients in the Medicare population, as measured by objective outcomes (risk-adjusted patient safety indicator rates) for 13 patient safety indicators defined by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Belton Medical Center is accredited by the Joint Commission. The accreditation award recognizes Belton Regional Medical Center’s dedication to continuous compliance with the Joint Commission’s state-of-the-art standards, including organizational quality of care and the safety of the environment in which care is provided.
