TCGH Places in Highest Percentile, Says National Survey

General

Tillamook County General Hospital (TCGH) recently received eleven awards based on the results of the 2010 PRC Medical Staff Perception Study, a national survey directed to health care professionals. The findings show how physicians and providers view the hospital in terms of overall quality of care and as a place to practice medicine.

Surveys completed by 29 TCGH medical staff members scored the hospital in the top 10 percent of all hospitals in the nationwide PRC database for seven categories including Patient Safety, Overall Quality of Care, and Place to Practice Medicine. The areas of Radiology, Administration, and Pharmacy were also ranked in the highest percentile.

Gina Seufert, Quality Resources Director, received the awards on behalf of the hospital for six 5-star and five 4-star categories at the PRC National Excellence in Healthcare Award Luncheon held June 8.

“Our hospital employees and medical staff are committed to providing top quality health care to our community,” stated Larry Davy, hospital CEO. “It is a great honor to see that commitment recognized by both the physicians who work with us in our healing mission as well as by health care peers from around the state.
