Metro Health Receives Governor’s Award for Quality, Safety

For the second year in a row, Metro Health Hospital has received special recognition as one of Michigan’s top hospitals from Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

The general acute-care osteopathic teaching hospital was one of 15 hospitals statewide to receive the Recognition of Excellence for being a top-performing hospital. Metro Health also received recognition in three award categories in the annual Governor’s Award for Improving Patient Safety and Quality of Care in the Hospital Setting. The awards were presented in conjunction with MPRO, Michigan’s health-care quality improvement organization.

The quality improvement award, which recognizes improvements in hospital health care quality and safety, included the following categories:

  • Emergency department
  • Surgical Care Improvement Project
  • Appropriate care measure

"We are pleased to once again be recognized by the governor as one of the state’s leading hospitals," said Mike Faas, president and CEO of Metro Health. "This award is particularly gratifying, as it came during our move into a new hospital.

"These awards demonstrate that Metro Health was able to deliver exceptional health-care services even during a time of incredible transition. As a health-care organization, we are committed to providing the best – and safest – patient experience."

The award criteria align with improving care in a number of clinical areas designated as national priorities by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

"Award recipients are committing to providing Michigan citizens with high quality health care," said Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
