Highlands Medical Center Recives Awards From Vizient Hospital Engagement Network


Highlands Medical Center received three awards for their active participation in this program.

One award is for Highlands Medical Center’s outstanding commitment to the goals of reducing patient harm.

The second award is for Highlands meeting or exceeding their goal in all ten of the above initiatives.

The third award, Outstanding Performer award,  is for Highlands achieving the highest level of performance in the Vizient Hospital Engagement Network, which is made up of 243 hospitals across the nation.  Highlands is ranked within the top 18% of the Vizient HEN hospitals.

“The success of this program at Highlands is due to the hard work and commitment of many, many staff members, including all nursing staff members from all of the inpatient departments, our Infection Preventionist, Mr. Craig Lacey, members of the Information Systems team Deva Allen and Kelly Jones, reports generated and submitted by Terri Wright, and many, many more staff members who assisted in one way or another.  These initiatives required input and teamwork from all of the staff in order for us to meet our goals.  We are very pleased to have received these awards, but the work is not over.  We will continue to work on these initiatives, as well as others, to improve care and reduce the chance of harm to all of our patients,” were comments from Debra Brickley, Director of Quality Management at Highlands.
