Joint Commission recognizes Memorial Hospital as Top Performer

Accreditation honors Memorial for quality care in 4 areas:
heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care

YAKIMA — Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital has been recognized as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® for 2013 by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditation entity of health care organizations in the United States.

The announcement recognizes Memorial as a top performer in four areas: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.

“It is a testament to our exemplary physicians and staff at Memorial to be recognized as a Top Performer by The Joint Commission,” Memorial CEO Russ Myers says. “To be specifically recognized in the areas of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care speaks to the dedication that each and every employee places on ensuring safe, high-quality care for our patients and visitors.”

The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 20,500 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including hospitals and health care organizations that provide ambulatory and office-based surgery, behavioral health, home care, laboratory and nursing home services. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

The Top Performer program supports health care organizations in their quest to improve programs and service to patients. The program is based on data reported in the previous year about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to be the best treatments for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma, inpatient psychiatric services, stroke and immunization.

The results, released Thursday in The Joint Commission’s 2014 annual report, “America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety,” are based on data reported by more than 3,300 Joint Commission accredited hospitals in 2013. Overall, the Joint Commission recognized 1,224 hospitals across the country with the 2013 Top Performer distinction. Memorial is one of 17 Washington state hospitals so recognized, and one of just nine in the state recognized in more than three clinical areas.

Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, Virginia Mason Health System Enter Formal Affiliation Discussions

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Oct. 29, 2014
Contacts: Shannon Dininny, Memorial Communications, (509) 577-5051
Gale Robinette, Virginia Mason Media Relations, (206) 341-1509

YAKIMA – Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital and Virginia Mason Health System announced their intent Wednesday to pursue a formal affiliation that would transform health care in the Yakima Valley, increase access to health care and improve the patient experience and value of care.

The boards of both hospitals have voted to sign a letter of intent, which is the next step in the affiliation process. The signing of the letter of intent enables the two organizations to conduct detailed discussions and perform necessary due diligence on the specific details of an affiliation whereby Memorial would become a part of the Virginia Mason Health System.

Memorial and Virginia Mason share similar values and cultures, as well as a commitment to innovation, and view a potential relationship as an opportunity to create a broader network of care that better serves both organizations’ communities.

“We are excited to work with Virginia Mason and look forward to continuing our discussions to build a partnership that serves our community,” Memorial CEO Russ Myers said. “Virginia Mason is a distinguished organization with strong leadership and excellent physicians.”

“In Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital we have found an organization with a shared vision for health care, focused on innovation, high quality and appropriate patient care at the lowest cost possible,” Virginia Mason Health System Chairman and CEO Gary S. Kaplan, MD, said.

Partnerships in health care are occurring across the country as a way to improve service, lower costs and respond to health care reform. Ultimately, these collaborations benefit the patients and communities they serve.

The Memorial Board of Trustees views a strategic partnership as an opportunity for Memorial – and Yakima – to maintain access to high-quality healthcare, improve access to specialty care, advance physician recruitment and expand our financial, clinical and information systems resources. Such a partnership also ensures that state-of-the-art medicine continues in this community.

Memorial and Virginia Mason, both not-for-profit health care providers, share a commitment to maintaining comprehensive health care in Yakima. Due diligence, a legal step in the affiliation process, is expected to take four to six months.

Memorial wins national award for end-of-life and palliative care efforts

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  July 17, 2014

Contacts: Shannon Dininny, Memorial Communications, 509.577.5051; Elizabeth Lietz, American Hospital Association, 202.626.2284

Memorial earns prestigious national award recognizing end-of-life care efforts

YAKIMA – Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital has been named a 2014 Circle of Life Award winner for its comprehensive programs to improve the care of patients near the end of life or with life-limiting conditions – one of just three honorees in the country.

The Circle of Life Award celebrates innovative programs that have made great strides in palliative and end-of-life care across the nation. In its 15th year, the Circle of Life Award is presented annually by the American Hospital Association.

Memorial operates a hospice house, Cottage in the Meadow, which was made possible through generous community support, and offers a largely volunteer-driven Transitions palliative care program that serves more than 200 patients each year in their homes. Monthly community talks provide guidance on various subjects, such as living wills and advance directives, coping with grief during the holidays and addressing special needs of veterans, and Memorial’s outreach programs work to build dialogue within our multicultural Yakima Valley about end-of-life issues.

“There’s a movement in this community to better respond to the needs and wishes of our loved ones as they approach end of life or face advanced illnesses. We value our role in this effort and will continue to help facilitate these conversations,” said Anne Caffery, president of The Memorial Foundation. “Our goal has always been for Cottage in the Meadow to belong to this community, and Cottage is just a snippet of the programs and services this award recognizes. We’re grateful to be recognized.”

Memorial was chosen by a selection committee made up of leaders from medicine, nursing, social work, ethics and health administration. The committee recognized Memorial for its efforts to provide palliative and end-of-life care programs throughout the Memorial Family of Services and to actively identify and work to meet community needs, including the needs of low-income and ethnically-diverse individuals. The committee also noted Transitions palliative care, fully funded by The Memorial Foundation, as a product of visionary leadership and strong community partnerships that offers a patient- and family-centered approach with extraordinary spiritual care and creative use of volunteers.

“This award is recognition of our staff, our many volunteers and our community as a whole. More and more, our community is engaging in the conversation about end-of-life and palliative care – what it looks like, who can benefit and how everyone should live the life they want to the end,” Memorial Vice President Diane Patterson said. “We’re thrilled to have our community so honored.”

The 2014 Circle of Life Award honorees will receive Circle of Life crystals commemorating their achievements at the AHA-Health Forum Leadership Summit Monday, July 21, in San Diego. Recognized with Memorial will be Baylor Health Care System Supportive and Palliative Care Services in Dallas, Texas, and Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

“This year’s Circle of Life honorees have made end-of-life and palliative care a key part of their care mission,” AHA President and CEO Rich Umbdenstock said. “These programs have found new ways to expand the reach of palliative and end-of-life care to patients, families and communities. They are model programs that other hospitals and health care systems can adapt and we are pleased to recognize the great strides they are taking in providing dedicated, compassionate care.”

Upon review, a select number of Circle of Life nominees were visited by the selection committee, including programs that:

  • provide effective, patient- and family-centered, timely, safe, efficient and equitable palliative and end-of-life care;
  • strive to implement the domains of the National Consensus Project Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care;
  • utilize innovative approaches to critical needs and serve as sustainable, replicable models for the field;
  • seek to address multi-faceted needs of persons living with serious illness throughout the disease trajectory;
  • demonstrate significant impact on people with life-limiting illness and those around them;
  • work with other health care organizations, education and training programs and the community.

The 2014 awards are supported, in part, by the California HealthCare Foundation and the Cambia Health Foundation. Major sponsors are the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Health Association, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the National Hospice Foundation. The awards are cosponsored by the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, the National Board for Certification of Hospice and Palliative Nurses and the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation, and the National Association of Social Workers. The Circle of Life Award is a program administered by the Health Research and Educational Trust.
