Twenty Kaiser Permanente hospitals, including Fremont Medical Center and Hayward Medical Center, have been nationally recognized as "Top Performers on Key Quality Measures(tm)" for 2011 performance in "Improving America's Hospitals The Joint Commission's Annual Report on Quality and Safety 2012."
"This is a reflection of how our physicians and medical staff collaborate to provide care that is integrated, coordinated and technologically advanced," said Dr. Calvin Wheeler, Physician-in-Chief, Kaiser Permanente Fremont Medical Center.
This is the second year of The Joint Commission's Top Performers report and the second time that the campuses of Fremont/Hayward made the list. Eight other Kaiser Permanente hospitals in Northern California were also honored.
