Redding, CA — Shasta Regional Medical Center was named one of the
nation’s top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission,
the leading accredited agency of health care organizations in America.
Shasta Regional was recognized for clinical performance that is linked
to improve care and positive patient outcomes for conditions including
heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
This is the second year in a row that Shasta Regional is being recognized
as a top performer. Shasta Regional is the only hospital in the north
state to receive this distinction and one of only 244 U.S. hospitals that
achieved the award two years in a row.
“This honor speaks highly of our commitment to our community to continue
to deliver exceptional health care. Shasta Regional is proud to be named
to the list of The Joint Commission’s top performers on key quality
measures,” said Randall Hempling, CEO of Shasta Regional Medical Center.
To be recognized as a top performer on key quality measures, an organization
must meet two 95 percent performance thresholds. First, they must achieve
a composite performance of 95 percent or above after the results of all
the accountability measures for which they report data to The Joint Commission
were factored into a single scores, including measures that had fewer
than 30 eligible cases or patients. Second, they must meet or exceed a
95 percent performance target for every single accountability measure
for which they report data, excluding any measures with fewer than 30
eligible cases or patients.
Eight Prime Healthcare Services hospitals were recognized as top performers
on key quality measures by the Joint Commission. Prime Healthcare Services
is the parent company of Shasta Regional Medical Center. More can be found
