Since 2011, Pocahontas Memorial Hospital has worked with the national coaching organization, Studer Group. The Studer Group works with healthcare organizations in the United States and other countries to “help them achieve and sustain exceptional improvement in clinical outcomes and financial results.” Studer Group’s goal is to help build a sustainable culture that promotes accountability, fosters innovation, and consistently delivers a great patient experience and the best quality outcomes over time.
Each month, the Studer Group recognizes two hospitals on a national level who show they can both improve results and sustain them.
PMH was the rural hospital selected as “Organization of the Month” for June and received a “Flame” Award.
Some of PMH’s accomplishments since 2011 include: increased physician and employee satisfaction and engagement, reduced falls, reduced Accounts Receivables days, and increased net operating margin.
