Cabinet Peaks Medical Center Earns Prestigious Quality Award

Cabinet Peaks Medical Center was honored last month for successfully demonstrating high performance on several national quality initiatives. During the annual conference held by the Montana Hospital Association (MHA) in Billings, CPMC received a Hospital Quality Award from Montana-Pacific Quality Health. This is the 3rd year in a row that Cabinet Peaks Medical Center has received this prestigious award.

Montana-Pacific is the Medicare Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (UIN-QIO) for Montana. Mountain-Pacific recognizes hospitals for their commitment to improving patient care through its Quality Awards program. The organization strives to promote excellence in healthcare through collaboration with healthcare professionals in an effort to ensure patients receive better health care at lower costs.

CPMC met several criteria to be considered for the award, including working on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Core Elements of outpatient antibiotic stewardship and taking steps to improve care transitions, cardiovascular health, medication safety, adult immunization rates, and patient and family engagement and satisfaction.

CPMC's leadership team is committed to quality, and their healthcare team demonstrated that commitment to earn the Hospital Quality Award.

"What an honor to receive a quality award from this organization for the third year in a row! We are very fortunate to have such high performing medical providers and staff in our community, and I am extremely proud of them for receiving this recognition," stated Bruce Whitfield, CPMC CEO.
