Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital has received the TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Bronze Award from TMF® Health Quality Institute. The award is sponsored by TMF, the Arkansas Hospital Association, Oklahoma Hospital Association, Oklahoma State Office of Rural Health, Texas Hospital Association and Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals. It recognizes hospitals in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas that have undertaken quality initiatives to improve outcomes in patient care and improve their performance on specific national quality measures.
The 2018 TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Award program is based on achievements in 2016 and 2017, and honors hospitals that are performing quality initiatives aimed at improving outcomes in patient care by recognizing those hospitals that have improved their performance on specific national quality measures.
“We are proud to have achieved this recognition. Our success illustrates our commitment to patient safety and to delivering quality health care,” said Chris Siebenaler, regional senior vice president and CEO of Houston Methodist Sugar Land.
“TMF is proud to recognize these hospitals for promoting quality improvement activities and their senior management for promoting a quality culture,” said Tom Manley, CEO of TMF Health Quality Institute. “Quality improvement is a complex and demanding process, and we thank Houston Methodist Sugar Land for its commitment to improving the health of patients and the efficiency of health care.”
Siebenaler said the hospital will continue to enhance its quality improvement efforts through collaboration with partners and with TMF Health Quality Institute.
