SSRH receives Governor’s Quality Award
SILOAM SPRINGS — Siloam Springs Regional Hospital recently received the prestigious Arkansas Governor’s Quality Award. This honor was given to hospital representatives at the Sept. 12 Governor’s Quality Award banquet.
“The goal of the Governor’s Quality Award Program is to encourage Arkansas organizations to engage in continuous quality improvement,” said SSRH chief executive officer Patrick Kerrwood. “This is evidence of our hospital’s commitment to this process and the value it brings in our continuous quest for healthcare excellence. It provides a transparent and objective way to look at our leadership and strategic planning perspective, as well as human resources and processes as a roadmap en route to even higher levels of success in patient care and healthy community goals. I want to thank all of our providers and staff for their daily efforts that helped us reach the first level of achievement of the Challenge Award.”
The award was founded by Arkansas business leaders as a way to recognize companies reaching for the highest standards in their products, services and processes with the goal of performance excellence. By submitting an organizational profile, SSRH successfully demonstrated the mission, vision, values and core competencies which capture the commitment to excellent customer service, the culture of quality and safety and being a great place to work.
