The Joint Commission's 2011 Quality & Safety Report Named Us a Top Performer

Eleven HCA East Florida hospitals were named the nation’s top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America. The hospitals earning this designation were recognized by The Joint Commission based on data reported about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including:

  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Surgical care
  • Children’s asthma

Additionally, HCA East Florida Division's Lawnwood Regional Medical Center and Heart Institute is the ONLY facility in the country to make all 5 indicators.
