Brentwood, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 17, 2009 -- QHR client hospitals Littleton Regional Hospital (Littleton, N.H.), North Valley Hospital (Whitefish, Mont.), Northwestern Medical Center (St. Albans, Vt.) and Trigg County Hospital (Cadiz, Kent.) were recently named "Overall Best Performers" by Avatar International, an industry leader in healthcare quality improvement services. Avatar celebrated these hospitals for their consistently high standards of patient care across multiple service lines. QHR client hospitals Gritman Medical Center (Moscow, Idaho) and Montrose Memorial Hospital (Montrose, Colo.) were also recognized for "Exceeding Patient Expectations" and "Best Practices" (Gritman).

"To attain a high level of patient satisfaction for a single service line is commendable. To achieve this result across all of the primary service lines within a hospital is indicative of an organizational commitment to service excellence and is a remarkable accomplishment," said Avatar CEO David Medvedeff of the "Overall Best Performers."

"I'm tremendously proud of these hospitals for all that they've achieved in their quality initiatives," said QHR President and CEO James L. Horrar. "From revenue cycle solutions and quality improvement to staffing assessments and operational metrics, QHR's consultants and operations executives help our hospital clients deliver and measure quality improvements each and every day. To see the combined efforts of our clients and associates yield such results is inspiring."

"I am extremely proud to be part of the Littleton Regional Hospital team that received this award," said Warren West, CEO of Littleton Regional Hospital. "These kinds of achievements are only possible through the hard work of our employees, and their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to serve our community each and every day."

Avatar's Overall Best Performer award is based on the results of the hospital's 2008 patient surveys. The awards are given to those hospitals with the highest overall combined score for Inpatient, Outpatient, Emergency Department and Ambulatory Surgery. The awards represent the top five percent in Avatar's National Database.
