Incline hospital earns pair of awards for patient care

Incline Village Community Hospital last week announced it has been named a 2016 Guardian of Excellence Award winner by Press Ganey Associates, Inc.

The Guardian of Excellence Award recognizes top-performing health care organizations that have consistently achieved the 95th percentile or above of performance in Patient Experience, based on patient surveys.

IVCH has also been named a 2016 Pinnacle of Excellence Award winner. This award recognizes top-performing clients from health care organizations nationwide on the basis of extraordinary achievement and consistently high levels of excellence for three years in Patient Experience.

The Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award is a nationally recognized symbol of achievement in health care. Presented annually, the award honors clients who consistently sustained performance in the top 5% of all Press Ganey clients for each reporting period during the course of one year.

Harry Weis, CEO, Tahoe Forest Health System, said the award represents an important recognition from the industry’s leader in measuring, understanding and improving the patient experience.

“Each day our staff strives to serve the Incline community with caring, compassionate, quality medical care,” says Weis. “We are humbled and honored to receive these awards, but they are really a thank you back to the community we serve in Incline Village.”
