 Larkin Named Top Urban Hospital

Larkin Community Hospital (LCH), one of Florida's twelve statutory teaching hospitals and the largest osteopathic teaching hospital in the nation, has been named Top Urban Hospital by The Leapfrog Group. LCH is the only hospital in South Florida (including Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties) to receive this elite designation. The Top Hospitals award is widely recognized as the nation's most competitive hospital quality awards. Award winners were announced and presented their awards at Leapfrog's Annual meeting in Washington, D.C., this week.


Hospitals from across the country were included in the group considered for the Top Hospitals designation. The South Miami healthcare provider received the high honor after a rigorous evaluation process. The award recognizes Larkin Community Hospital for demonstrating the highest standards in quality of care, including lower infection rates, higher survival rates for high-risk procedures, decreased length of hospital stay, and fewer readmissions.


Dr. Jack J. Michel, Chairman of Larkin Community Hospital said the Top Hospital honor is a team achievement. "This award is a testament to the dedication of our team and our shared commitment to deliver the finest quality care for every patient we see.


Broward Health Medical Center Aims to Transform Cancer Care  

As part of its continued effort to transform cancer care, Broward Health Medical Center (BHMC) will implement Via Oncology Pathways into its medical oncology program.


Via Oncology Pathways is software that offers treatment plans based on data. Its goal is to use treatment plans proven effective through research. Treatment recommendations are tailored to each patient's specific cancer type and stage of the disease.


Pathways covers more than 90 percent of cancer types, including all major phases and modalities of treatment, diagnostics, patient support and end-of-life care. This program also helps identify suitable clinical trials for cancer patients.


In turn, BHMC physicians and clinicians will join specific committees of academic and community oncologists around the country to establish and update the Pathways database quarterly, based on a review of new evidence and publicly available clinical trial results.


"When we talk about our vision for the future, Pathways is a key part of our program's transformation to new models of accountable cancer care," said Nicholas Tranakas, MD, medical director of cancer services at Broward Health Medical Center.
