Do You Know a Healthcare Game Changer?
South Miami Based Larkin Community Hospital Recognized for Patient Safety 

 

Larkin Community Hospital (LCH) ranks as one of the best in the state of Florida and the nation in assuring patient safety according to findings by the Hospital-Acquired Condition Reduction Program. The program, part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), evaluates the nation's hospitals in an effort to reduce patient infections and other preventable conditions during hospital stays.

Hospitals nationwide were ranked on a scale of one to ten with ten reflecting the worst performance against the three measurements. LCH received a score of 1.35 which is one of the lowest and thus, amongst the very best nationwide. The rankings were compiled from reports detailing the frequency of incidents related to infection, bedsores, fractures, and blood clots.

Sandy Sosa-Guerrero, CEO of Larkin Community Hospital said this achievement reflects the hospital's commitment to education.

The University of Miami medical school's Bascom Palmer Eye Institute is the best eye hospital in the country, according to U.S. News and World Report rankings released Tuesday.

 

The eye institute has topped the list for 11 straight years for its reputation among ophthalmologists. It's one of only 3 percent of U.S. hospitals to be ranked in any specialty, according to the magazine.

 

"To be named No. 1 is a great honor; to be named No. 1 year after year and without interruption can only happen when you have an unwavering commitment to groundbreaking research, education and world-class clinical care," Pascal J. Goldschmidt, MD, Dean of UM's Miller School of Medicine, said in a statement.
