Monmouth Medical Center Earns Top Performer on Key Quality Measures Recognition from The Joint Commission

01/04/2016

The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the U.S., has named Monmouth Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility and award-winning provider of medical care, as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures®.

The Joint Commission’s Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® program honors hospitals that demonstrate excellent performance on evidence-based process of care measures. Also, it is intended to encourage hospitals to consistently improve their performance on accountability measures by publicly recognizing those that ultimately achieve excellence in this arena. The ultimate goal is to improve the care provided to patients in all aspects addressed by these accountability measures.

Monmouth Medical Center has been consistently recognized since the Top Performer on Key Quality Measures program was introduced in 2011 and was among just 17 New Jersey hospitals named to the 2015 list. Recognition of Top Performer hospitals occurs in the fall of each year and coincides with the publication of The Joint Commission’s “America’s Hospital’s: Improving Quality and Safety” annual report.

“Excellent care is something all patients expect and deserve. Hospitals work hard to achieve Top Performer status—it is not an easy goal to reach; it takes the knowledge, teamwork and dedication of the entire hospital staff,” said Frank J. Vozos, M.D., FACS, president and CEO of Monmouth Medical Center.
