Guthrie Corning Hospital has been named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety and Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital has been named one of America’s Best Hospitals for Emergency Care by the Women’s Choice Award, a referral source for the best in healthcare. The Patient Safety Award signifies that Guthrie Corning Hospital is in the top 16% of 3,179 U.S. hospitals for patient safety. The Emergency Care Award signifies that the Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital Emergency Department consistently scores in the highest 25th to 50th percentile in the country reporting on emergency department performance to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, primarily related to the amount of time taken in the Emergency Department such as time for diagnosis, medication and admission to the hospital.
“The recipients of the America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety Award have led the country by implementing safe practices that have ultimately saved lives,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “This recognition is critical for women as they make 80% of healthcare decisions and need to know they are putting themselves—and their family members—in safe hands.”
“Emergency departments can be very stressful environments, particularly for the elderly or a mother with a sick or injured child,” Delia Passi said. “Women want to be confident that they know which emergency departments in their communities will take care of their loved ones quickly and with the best possible care,” Passi said of the Emergency Care Award.
Congratulations to all who are involved in making these Guthrie hospitals an excellent place to receive care.
