Sinai Health System of Chicago Awarded IHA Pledge Quality Achievement Award

October 6, 2011

The Illinois Hospital Association (IHA) Quality Care Institute recently presented its first annual Quality Excellence Achievement Awards at the 2011 IHA Leadership Summit.  Six Illinois hospitals and health systems were recognized for “their innovative interventions and best practices designed to advance quality patient care.”

Included among the six recognized hospitals and health systems was Sinai Health System, a Safety Net system in Chicago.  The award was presented for the system’s initiative “Reducing Hospital-Acquired Infection: Approaching Zero Defects.”

“These awards recognize and help promote collaboration and dialogue among Illinois hospitals to improve patient care and outcomes,” said Cathy Grossi, Vice President, Quality Care Institute/Health Policy and Regulation. “Because health care is continually evolving, the Quality Care Institute provides members with numerous resources and educational tools and opportunities for the sharing of best practices on a variety of quality issues.”

More than 50 quality improvement projects were submitted by hospitals from across the state to be considered for the inaugural Quality Excellence Achievement Awards. All of the projects will be featured in a Quality Care Institute best practices compendium.
