Holy Redeemer Hospital Recognized for Excellence in Patient Safety


MEADOWBROOK, Pa. – January 2023 – Holy Redeemer Hospital is among only 21 Pennsylvania hospitals recognized in the Excellence in Patient Safety program, according to the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP). The hospitals are ranked as the state’s top-performers by demonstrating low rates of health care-associated infections.

HAP identifies top-performing hospitals using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Healthcare Safety Network. To be recognized, hospitals must perform better than the mean standardized infection ratio in three key measures: central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and Clostridioides difficile infections.

“Effective infection prevention measures are yet another example of our commitment to safety,” said Jeanette Teets, Redeemer Health VP and Chief Quality, Safety and Reliability Officer. “To be among so few hospitals in Pennsylvania to achieve top-performing scores is testimony to the talent and allegiance our team demonstrates every day.”

Data measured for the survey was collected in 2021, while hospitals were performing in the throes of COVID-19 pandemic stress. “HAP is proud to recognize the hospital teams and leaders who demonstrated extraordinary work to protect patient safety—even as they were strained by the COVID-19 pandemic and a historic health care workforce crisis,” HAP President and CEO Andy Carter said.
