Door County Medical Center’s focus on developing a positive culture in its hospital has been rewarded with 10 Excellence in Healthcare Awards. Given by healthcare researcher Professional Research Consultants, Door County Medical Center was recognized through data and patient surveys in several areas such as overall quality of care in the emergency department, the responsiveness of staff and care transition, and physician communication. Vice President of Patient Care Jody Boes says having a positive culture for its staff has translated to better patient care.
Door County Medical Center was also honored for its “Door Way to Excellence” culture initiative with the Platinum Achievement Award. The hospital will be formally presented with the awards in a ceremony held in Austin, Texas on June 22.
