Genesys earns Governor's Award of Excellence

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys once again has received the Governor’s Award of Excellence for improving care in a hospital setting. This award recognizes Genesys for patient safety initiatives and quality of care improvements in acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), heart failure and pneumonia; and for its surgical care improvement project; and health information technology readiness in computerized physician order entry. The award is based on clinical data for the 2006 calendar year.
Genesys has won the Governor's Award two years in a row. To earn this recognition, hospitals must meet extensive criteria in each category using evidence-based practices to produce successful measured outcomes in selected clinical areas. The areas chosen have been designated as national health care priorities by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

“Award recipients are committed to providing Michigan citizens with high quality health care,” announced Gov. Jennifer Granholm at a recent awards presentation. “The award is testament to the dedication of these hospitals that give patients the quality care they need and deserve each and every time.”

MPRO (Michigan Peer Review Organization), the state's Medicare quality improvement organization, partners with the Governor to recognize hospitals in the state that achieve measured improvements in patient care. MPRO has worked closely with health care providers since 1984 to improve the quality and delivery of health care in Michigan.
