MCH Ranked Top Georgia Hospital
Wednesday, December 26, 2012
Mitchell County Hospital was recently named a Top Georgia Hospital among critical access hospitals in the state by Georgia Trend Magazine.
In the December issue, the magazine listed MCH among the top 72 hospitals in Georgia for excelling in areas such as quality of care and patient satisfaction. Additional publically available information on hospital readmissions, mortality and hospital acquired infections obtained from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) was used to compile the rankings.
All four Archbold hospitals achieved high rankings in their respective patient bed categories with MCH placing 7th in the category for hospitals in rural communities typically with 25 or fewer beds.
“Our staff is dedicated to providing our community with high-quality healthcare,” said Mark Kimball, MCH administrator. “Ensuring that our patients receive the right care at the right time in a safe environment is our highest priority.”
The Georgia Trend ranking marks the conclusion of another exceptional year for MCH.
The hospital’s sustained focus on overall quality of care and patient safety helped MCH consistently place on GHA’s “Quality Honor Roll” and earned the hospital The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation for demonstrating compliance with national standards for healthcare quality and safety in hospitals.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a Top Georgia Hospital for the quality care we provide,” said Kimball. “It’s a testament to the dedication of our staff, and it’s something for our community to be very proud of.”
