Community Outreach and Philanthropy, (928) 771-5686, released January 27, 2012 | Jan 03, 2014
Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) is among six healthcare organizations
nationwide—four of them hospitals—to receive the CNA Leadership in Safety Award since it was initiated by CNA HealthPro in 2009. The award was presented to YRMC leaders in December by CNA HealthPro executives.
“Every day, I see people throughout YRMC demonstrating their commitment to the
hospital’s Total Healing Environment,” said Tim Barnett, YRMC President and CEO.
“However, when representatives of an organization outside of YRMC observe our values in action and then feel compelled to recognize us, I can’t help but feel extremely proud of the YRMC team.”
Chicago-based CNA is a major provider of professional liability insurance for hospitals
and other healthcare providers throughout the country. The CNA HealthPro representatives with whom YRMC works nominated the hospital for this award.
“YRMC’s patient-centered approach to delivering care demonstrates its ongoing
commitment to the community it serves,” said June Leigh, CNA HealthPro Assistant Vice President, Risk Control. The CNA Leadership in Safety Award recognizes healthcare organizations that have exhibited excellence in patient safety.
“We work with many outstanding healthcare organizations, but only a select few are
recipients of this award,” Leigh said. “The award represents organizations with enterprise-wide patient safety and quality improvement programs – dedicating their resources to achieve measurable results focusing upon outstanding customer service.”
