For the Second Consecutive Year, King's Daughters Medical Center is Recognized for Excellent Healthcare Quality achieving the SafeCare Group®

100 SafeCare Hospitals® represent the nation's top performing hospitals in 40 evidence-based metrics of the Affordable Care Act. The selection was based upon superior hospital performance with HCAHPS, Core Measures, 30-Day Mortality rates, 30-Day Readmissions, Complications Rates in Medical and Surgical Care, Medical and Surgical Infections. If all U.S. hospitals attained the 100 SafeCare Hospitals® level, more than 400,000 patient deaths and the millions of preventable complications would have been prevented.

"King's Daughters Medical Center is recognized for excelling in the evidence-based metrics of value based care, low readmissions, and low complications of care," says Dr. Yisrael Safeek, MD, MBA, Founder and Chairman of The SafeCare Group®. "Achieving this distinction two years in a row can only come from leadership that sets quality, patient safety, and efficiency of care as top priority."

KDMC CEO, Alvin Hoover said, "It is very gratifying to know that our commitment to quality care and safety has been recognized over and again by numerous outside rating agencies. We truly believe that healing is more than dressing a wound or providing the right medicine at the right time. Healing for us is, and has always been, about being welcomed with a smile; seeing you as a person not just a patient; and treating everyone — and I mean everyone —as God's special creation that deserves our very best and our prayers."

About 100 SafeCare Hospitals®

To produce a meaningful ranking of US hospitals, The SafeCare Group® looked to the Affordable Care Act for guidance of an evidence-based framework for the 100 SafeCare Hospitals® rankings. The distinguished medical and legal experts who designed, developed, and implemented the Affordable Care Act believed that a listing of hospitals in the areas of Hospital Value Based Program (HVBP), Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP), and Hospital-Acquired Conditions Reduction Program (HACRP) would promote strong incentives to improve care. The SafeCare Group adopted this framework for the 100 SafeCare Hospitals® methodology, as it represented evidence-based metrics in the areas of "Quality of Care," "Patient Safety," and "Efficiency of Care."
