Holy Redeemer Hospital has been named an honoree of Excellence in Patient Safety Recognition, a program launched in 2018 by The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania 

Holy Redeemer Hospital is one of only 17 hospitals in Pennsylvania that have received this distinguished recognition, which HAP awards to top-performing hospitals that have demonstrated low rates of health-care associated infections.

“This recognition by The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania attests to our continued and focused efforts to prioritize patient safety. Despite the extraordinary challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the last year, our leadership and team members across all operational areas tirelessly fostered Safe Care principles, which are the tenets of our commitment to high reliability,” says Catherine Egan, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Holy Redeemer Hospital, and Jeanette Teets, Vice President and Chief Quality, Safety, and Reliability Officer, Redeemer Health.

The Excellence in Patient Safety Recognition program analyzes the CDC’s National Healthcare Safety Network to identify hospitals performing better than average. The data measures the following criteria: central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and clostridium difficile infections. The recognition program also identifies best practices that can be shared among all hospitals.
