IMQ

FAIRFIELD, Calif., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The physician surveyors from the Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) recently released findings from an exhaustive review of patient care at Sutter Regional Medical Foundation (SRMF) and its affiliated medical group, Solano Regional Medical Group (SRMG). IMQ gave SRMF/SRMG a glowing report that will allow it to retain a three-year IMQ accreditation, a quality "seal of approval" coveted universally by medical groups.

IMQ, headquartered out of San Francisco, Calif., is a nationally respected and renowned non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of care provided to patients across the continuum of health care. IMQ offers a wide range of educational, accreditation, consultation and certification programs.

"We're proud to be the only group practice in Solano County fully accredited by IMQ," says John Ray, CEO of SRMF. "Recognition of this kind truly shows that we stand out as a health care provider by offering the highest level of quality care available anywhere in the region."

The exhaustive and thorough review process at SRMF/SRMG included touring care centers, interviewing staff, and reviewing policies, medical records, credential files and documentation of medication use. At the debrief meeting with SRMF senior management the IMQ physician surveyors noted that each interaction with SRMF/SRMG physicians and staff revealed a focused dedication to maintaining the highest level of service and quality for patients.

"Throughout the onsite survey process it was evident that the experienced physician surveyors could not have been more pleased with what they found at SRMF/SRMG," says Ron Rushford, M.D., medical director for SRMF. "Both inspectors complimented our team on the dedication to service excellence, commitment to high quality care, and marveled at our beautiful patient care centers -- even remarking that we're the 'Rolls Royce' of medical organizations."

Formal comments from IMQ about SRMF/SRMG:

-- This is an outstanding organization. They have many programs in place

to continually improve the care and safety of their patients.

-- The employees are committed to making each patient and their families

have the best possible results from their visit to their health care

professional.

-- The facility is well planned and beautiful, wonderful for the patients.

-- IMQ encourages this kind of an organization.
