U-M Health System Honored by American Hospital Association for High Quality Care and Patient Safety

strative staff, that made the award possible.

The AHA-McKesson prize, which is supported by grants from the McKesson Corporation and McKesson Foundation, is just one of the recent recognitions for UMHS quality and safety. Earlier this month, U.S. News and World Report ranked the U-M Hospitals and Health Centers 13th in the country, and rated 15 of its specialty care programs among the top in the nation.

The magazine has also ranked the U-M Medical School and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital among the best in the nation. Meanwhile, the University HealthSystem Consortium, made up of academic medical centers, has noted U-M's excellence in patient safety and quality efforts, ranking it sixth in the country recently. And a report prepared by the UHC put U-M at the top of the nation's academic medical centers in providing equitable care to patients in all financial situations.

In addition to striving for quality inside its own walls, UMHS is working to spread quality health care around the entire state of Michigan and the nation by leading a number of initiatives in specific area of care. From heart attacks and strokes to general surgery and breast cancer, U-M physicians and nurses are spearheading efforts that are helping dozens of hospitals understand how they are performing on quality and safety measures, and take steps to improve.

These efforts, funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, the Michigan Hospital Association and the American College of Surgeons, amplify U-M's value to the state's employers and to the insurers and other payors who pay for much of the state's health care, Strong notes.

"We're very proud of the role that we play in the direct care of our patients, but we also place great importance on the role we play in the greater society, in helping spur other organizations toward higher and higher levels of quality and safety," says Strong.
