Redeemer Health Recognized for Patient Safety


MEADOWBROOK, Pa. - Oct. 11, 2023 Holy Redeemer Hospital was one of only 29 hospitals in the Commonwealth notified by the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) that it demonstrated low rates of health care-associated infections in 2022. 

HAP identified top-performing hospitals using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Healthcare Safety Network. To be recognized, according to HAP, 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 (C. diff) infections. Hospitals that achieved this standard are included in HAP’s 2023 Excellence in Patient Safety Recognition program.

“This recognition validates the hard work and steadfast commitment that Redeemer Health exhibits with every patient every day,” said Cass Egan, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of Holy Redeemer Hospital. “Preventing health care-associated infections requires unwavering attention to detail, and resolute focus on every patient’s safety. I’m proud of the team at Holy Redeemer Hospital, for insisting on a level of safety that is recognized as a top-performer.”

Nicole Stallings, HAP’s President and CEO, said, “HAP is proud to recognize the hospital teams with exemplary results from their efforts to continuously improve the quality and safety of patient care. This year, more hospitals met the criteria to be recognized than any other year since this program began. This speaks to the Pennsylvania hospital community’s strong commitment to patient safety.” 

HAP is a statewide membership services organization that represents 235 hospitals as well as the patients and communities they serve. Additional information about HAP is available online, and learn more about the Excellence in Patient Safety Recognition program here.
