Kaiser Hospitals Achieve 'Top Performer' Status

Submitted By Jessie Mangaliman

The Hayward and Fremont hospital campuses of Kaiser Permanente are among four Kaiser Permanente hospitals in Northern California named "Top Performers in Key Quality Measures" in an annual report released today by The Joint Commission.

The Joint Commission is the leading health-care accreditation organization in the U.S., responsible for inspecting and approving more than 19,000 health-care organizations and programs around the country. The new "Top Performers" designation "recognizes accredited hospitals and critical-access hospitals that attain and sustain excellence" on benchmarks that measure how well they treat a variety of serious medical conditions.

The 405 organizations on the "Top Performer" list are identified as attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance for the full previous year (2010). They represent approximately 14 percent of Joint Commission-accredited hospitals and critical-access hospitals that report core measure performance data.
