UPMC Content 2

Six UPMC hospitals, including UPMC Hamot, have been recognized in The Joint Commission’s Top Performer on Key Quality Measures program, which identifies hospitals that achieve excellence on certain measures of evidence-based care.

Besides UPMC Hamot, Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, UPMC Bedford Memorial, UPMC East, UPMC McKeesport and UPMC Mercy were honored for their performance during the 2014 calendar year—with UPMC McKeesport receiving this recognition in each of the five years that the list has been published. 

As the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America, The Joint Commission has recognized these facilities for their commitment to assuring that evidence-based interventions are delivered to patients in a timely and accurate manner.

Ratings for the Top Performer designations are based on the aggregation of 49 accountability measures for 12 conditions. UPMC hospitals were recognized in the following areas:

  • Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC- pneumonia, surgical care, immunization, perinatal care
  • UPMC Bedford Memorial- pneumonia, surgical care, immunization, perinatal care
  • UPMC East- heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, stroke, immunization
  • UPMC Hamot- heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, immunization, perinatal care
  • UPMC McKeesport- heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, stroke, immunization
  • UPMC Mercy- heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, immunization, perinatal care

“The Joint Commission has recognized the commitment of our physicians, nurses and other staff to providing the highest-quality care for our patients,” said Tami Minnier, chief quality officer for UPMC. “As a leading health care provider and insurer, affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC is uniquely positioned to sustain this performance.”

A full list of Top Performer hospitals is available on The Joint Commission website.
