Mercy Allen Hospital has been ranked among the nation’s top performers on key quality measures by the Joint Commission, an accreditor of health care organizations in North America.


This is the third straight year the hospital has received the award, which is bestowed upon clinics that implement processes shown to improve patient outcomes and reduce preventable harm.


Mercy was recognized for excellence in the specific areas of pneumonia and surgical care.


There were 1,090 hospitals recognized by the Joint Commission this year. Ratings are based on 2012 data.


“Mercy has made a commitment to providing our patients with the up-most quality care based on evidence-based processes,” said Mercy president Edwin Oley. “We are proud that Mercy Allen Hospital has been recognized by The Joint Commission, for the third year in a row, for the quality care that it provides to the patients in our community.”
