Once again, Lutheran has been named as a hospital that women prefer. Women’s Choice Award® has recognized Lutheran as a 2017 America’s 100 Best Hospital for Patient Experience, based on HCAHPS reporting weighed according to the preference of female consumers.
Although our current HCAHPS scores are not where we want them to be, we appreciate being singled out as a hospital of choice among women, especially since women are often making healthcare decisions.
The award will be announced to the public during National Hospital Week. We don’t pay to receive this recognition, and also don’t typically purchase the package that allows us to market the award. It’s still good news to share internally with our associates and physicians! Thank you for all you do to provide personalized, compassionate care.
Congratulations also to the nursing staff of PCU! They won a national video contest for their lifestyle of participation in physical activities. Our team was one of the top 20 videos in the American Nursing Association’s “Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation, What’s Your Resolution?” contest.
PCU nurses are committed to getting together for a monthly “PCU Fitness Day,” in addition to individual activities at other times. Thanks for exemplifying our efforts at health and wellness at Lutheran. The nursing staff plans to use the prize money to build an “Oasis Room” on their unit. Read more about it and watch the video here.
We haven’t had a contest the past couple weeks, so there are no winners to announce. Here is this week’s question. Answer it correctly and three of you can win a free yoga class from Bridges Health and Wellness.
Q.: What is the phone number for Room Service for Staff?
Send your answers to LMCCommunications@sclhs.net to be entered in the drawing. Lutheran associates only, please. Managers, directors, senior leaders and previous winners aren’t eligible.
Have a great week,
