CaroMont Health was selected as one of the top hospitals to participate in Premier’s Quest: High Performing Hospitals program. Our selection was driven by our implementation of evidence-based care, our low cost structure, and our focus on reducing avoidable mortality. In the first year of the program, CaroMont Health was in the top 25% of participants for all three of those criteria. In addition, we participated in Premier’s Hospital Quality Incentive Demonstration program, which rewards hospitals for quality care in specific measured criteria. CaroMont Health ranked in the top 10% for all five measured criteria: Acute Myocardial Infarction, Pneumonia, Hip and Knee, CABG (open heart surgery), and Surgical Improvement Process (SCIP).
