HHS Secretary Sebelius Highlights Michigan's MHA Keystone Center in Inaugural Health Care 'Success Story' Report
Date:7/13/2009

LANSING, Mich., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius today released the first in a series of health care "success story" reports that document innovative programs and initiatives that can serve as models for American health care reform. The inaugural report highlights the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) Keystone Center for Patient Safety & Quality Intensive Care Unit (MHA Keystone: ICU) project that -- through voluntary efforts of Michigan hospitals -- helped dramatically reduce the number of health care-associated infections in Michigan ICUs, saving more than 1,500 lives and $200 million over 18 months.

"We know there are tremendous examples of efficient, high-quality health care in America today. Our challenge is spreading these good examples across the country," said Sebelius. "Our reports will showcase success stories like the Michigan Keystone ICU Project and highlight how health reform can improve the quality of care for all Americans."

"When we enact health reform, we can improve quality, help control costs and ensure success stories like the Michigan Keystone ICU Project become the rule, not the exception," added Sebelius.
