Conway Regional Health System (CRHS) recently received a 2018 Quality Award from CareChex® “for medical excellence in overall hospital care” among hospitals located across central Arkansas.
CareChex®, an information service of Quantros, Inc., scores, rates, ranks, and compares inpatient quality performance across general, acute, non-federal U.S. hospitals in 38 clinical categories using publicly available data from the most recent and consecutive 10 quarters.
The central Arkansas market, as defined by CareChex®, includes eight cities that include Benton, Conway, Jacksonville, Little Rock, North Little Rock, Pine Bluff, Searcy and Sherwood.
In addition to recognition as the market leader for medical excellence in overall hospital care, Conway Regional also received national recognition in nine services lines for medical excellence or patient safety. Those service lines include cancer care, cardiac care, gastrointestinal care, heart attack treatment, neurological care, orthopedic care, stroke care, vascular surgery and women’s health.
“In everything we do, our team strives to excel for our patients and our community, and to set the standard of care on a state and national level,” said Matt Troup, president and CEO of Conway Regional Health System. “As we continue to build upon the comprehensive health care we have offered for almost a century, we will always place our patients and quality as our top priorities.”
“This recognition is achieved only through a consistent track record of excellence so these awards truly represent the health care leaders in communities nationwide,” said Amy Lee, Director of Marketing for Quantros. “It’s impressive to see the outstanding work being carried out by community hospitals in multiple specialties, and to see those same institutions being ranked at a regional and national level.”
Nationally, 4,733 hospitals are evaluated in the category of Overall Hospital Care; however, the number of hospitals that are scored in specific specialties differs, and depends on the number of health care facilities who offer that particular service.
