LCMH honored for excellence in quality of care outcomes
PRINCETON - Lawrence County Memorial Hospital has been recognized for its ongoing commitment to exceptional quality of care by the Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network.

The recognition came last month, at the ICAHN annual ceremony in Champaign.

As part of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Program (MBQIP), Lawrence County Memorial Hospital and other critical access hospitals were asked to voluntarily participate in four defined domains of quality outcomes. These four domains include:

• Patient Safety/Inpatient.

• Patient Engagement.

• Care Transitions.

• Outpatient Measures.

"Often, in rural hospitals, having a devoted staff member to abstract and submit this data can be both time-consuming and burdensome," said Angie Charlet, ICAHN Senior Director of Quality, Educational Services, and Compliance. "This hospital realizes how important quality of care and an engaged staff is for its patients. From its top leadership on throughout the facility, each strives for continued quality on a daily basis, and that is what we are celebrating today."

Lawrence County Memorial Hospital was honored for demonstrating the most improvement over one year.

"We are very proud of our team for achieving this level of excellence in health quality," said Don Robbins, CEO. "This is truly a team effort that recognizes our dedication to delivering a healthcare experience of which our patients and staff can be proud."

Lawrence County Memorial Hospital was also honored for its creation of a daytime acute care clinic.

ICAHN, located in Princeton, is a network of 56 small rural Illinois hospitals dedicated to strengthening the operations of its member hospitals through collaboration. The organization is composed of Illinois hospitals who have earned critical access hospital designation by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. ICAHN is recognized nationally for its work with rural healthcare and administers several state, federal and private healthcare programs.
