TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Silver Award

St. John Broken Arrow has received the TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Silver Award from TMF® Health Quality Institute.

TMF is the Texas Medical Foundation, a CMS Quality Improvement Organization. The TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Award program is sponsored by TMF, the Arkansas Hospital Association, Oklahoma Hospital Association, Oklahoma State Office of Rural Health, Texas Hospital Association and Texas Organization of Rural and Community Hospitals. It recognizes hospitals in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas that have undertaken quality initiatives to improve outcomes in patient care and improve their performance on specific national quality measures. This program was established in 2004 as a non-competitive recognition program designed to identify exemplary outcomes achieved by hospitals.

The 2018 TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Award program is based on achievements in 2016 and 2017. It honors hospitals that are performing quality initiatives aimed at improving outcomes in patient care by recognizing those hospitals that have improved their performance on specific national quality measures.

Out of 557 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS or Acute Care) Hospitals and 188 Critical Access Hospitals (CAH), 51 earned the TMF Hospital Quality Improvement Gold Award. The Silver Award went to 50 hospitals, and 51 hospitals earned the Bronze Award.

St. John Broken Arrow Recognized As High Performing Hospital by U.S. News & World Report

St. John Broken Arrow has been recognized as a High Performing Hospital for 2019-20 by U.S. News & World Report.

St. John Broken Arrow earned a “High Performing” rating in Hip and Knee Replacements, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. “High Performing” is the highest rating U.S. News awards for hip and knee replacement care.

The annual Procedures & Conditions ratings, now in their 5th year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for common conditions and elective procedures. These ratings extend the U.S. News mission of providing consumers with patient decision support beyond the Best Hospitals rankings, which are geared toward complex specialty care.

For the 2019-20 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in nine procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 57 earned this rating in all nine Procedures & Conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
