Mountain-Pacific Quality Health announced last week that St. Luke Community Hospital is among the recipients of the 2019 Montana Health Care Quality Awards.

St. Luke Community Healthcare was one of only nine hospitals state-wide and the only healthcare organization in Lake County to win the prestigious award based on their commitment to improving patient care.

All recipients were required to meet certain criteria outlined by Mountain-Pacific, including working on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Core Elements of outpatient antibiotic stewardship and taking steps to improve care transitions, medication safety, adult immunization rates and patient and family engagement and satisfaction.

“Montana hospitals’ leadership and staff continually demonstrate dedication to improving the lives of their patients and community members through quality improvement,” said Sara Medley, Mountain- Pacific’s CEO. “The 2019 Quality Awards reflect their commitment to improved patient safety, better health and lower costs. Mountain-Pacific is proud to acknowledge their achievement and celebrate their success.”

All Montana hospitals are eligible for Hospital Quality Awards. Award-winning hospitals range from small, rural hospitals to large, urban hospitals.
