St. Paul hospital receives top marks for heart, pneumonia care

ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Regions Hospital received the highest ranking in the metro area in three key areas of a national quality report. The St. Paul hospital received above average ratings for heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia care, according to The Joint Commission's Quality Check website (http://www.qualitycheck.org).

"We're very proud of the ongoing quality improvement work of our physicians and staff to ensure our patients consistently receive the best possible care and experience at Regions," said Dr. Kenneth Holmen, vice president of medical affairs for Regions. "These high performance ratings are a reflection of the collaborative nature of our organization to implement safe, evidence-based medicine."

The Joint Commission is an independent, non-profit organization that sets the standards by which health care quality is measured nationally. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services "National Quality Improvement Goals" are standardized performance measures for all of the nation's 3,000 accredited health care organizations.

Regions is now the only metro hospital with above average ratings in 3 of 4 National Quality Improvement Goals for the most recent reporting period, July 2006 - June 2007. Regions also ranks among the highest for surgical care improvement, the fourth core quality measure established by CMS.

Regions Hospital is a Level I Trauma Center and teaching hospital serving Minnesota and western Wisconsin for more than 130 years. Regions is a private, non-profit hospital providing outstanding care in women's health, heart, cancer, surgery, orthopaedics, neuroscience, burn, emergency care and more. Regions is part of the HealthPartners family of care. Additional information is available at regionshospital.com.
