Spectrum Health United Hospital honored with patient safety award

In observance of National Patient Safety Awareness Week, the Economic Alliance for Michigan (EAM), a nonprofit group comprised of Michigan’s largest employers and unions, announced Spectrum Health United Hospital as a recipient of the 2021 EAM Hospital Patient Safety Award. This annual award recognizes hospitals in Michigan consistently performing high marks and improvements in patient safety and quality of care. 

“Congratulations to all the hospitals who earned an EAM Hospital Patient Safety Award. By making patient safety a top priority, you are saving hundreds of lives,” said Bret Jackson, president, EAM. “There’s no doubt the pandemic has pushed hospitals and healthcare professionals in Michigan to their breaking points. Thank you to all the frontline workers for your hard work and dedication in helping Michiganders get through this difficult time.” 

Spectrum Health United Hospital, along with Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital and Zeeland Community Hospital, earned the Excellence Award. Hospitals receiving the Excellence Award participated in the annual Leapfrog Group survey and maintained all “A’s” with Hospital Safety Grade in four consecutive grading terms (Spring 2019, Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Fall 2020).

“Even during a pandemic, our team has remained vigilant and dedicated to preventing hospital-acquired conditions from occurring,” said Andrea Leslie, president of Spectrum Health United, Kelsey, Big Rapids and Reed City Hospitals. “This award demonstrates that patient safety has always been and remains our top priority.”
