Northwestern Memorial Hospital honored with one of the nation's top awards for quality

CHICAGO One of the nation's preeminent symbols of quality in health care the 2005 National Quality Health Care Award was bestowed upon Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The award is presented annually by the National Committee for Quality Health Care (NCQHC) with corporate sponsorship from the Cardinal Health Foundation and with legacy partner Modern Healthcare magazine.

Established in 1994, NCQHC's National Quality Health Care Award is presented to a healthcare provider which demonstrates outstanding programs to improve quality, embraces innovation and forward thinking, and establishes ways to measure and evaluate those processes to benefit the community. The award is the oldest and one of the most prestigious health quality awards in the United States.

"We are honored to receive this award. It provides validation that we are making significant strides toward our goal of providing the best and safest care for our patients," said Gary A. Mecklenburg, president and chief executive officer, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Northwestern Memorial Hospital's parent company. "This recognition is very special to us as it comes from an organization comprised of providers and other healthcare industry leaders. None of this would be possible without the support and involvement of our board of directors, medical staff, employees and every member of the Northwestern Memorial family," added Mecklenburg.

"The jury, chaired by NCQHC board member Ken Samet, president and chief operating officer of Medstar Health, was impressed with Northwestern Memorial Hospital's strong commitment to guaranteeing that quality is central to healthcare delivery. NCQHC's National Quality Health Care Award honors Northwestern Memorial's executive leadership and staff for their exceptional efforts in the quality healthcare field to ensure patient centered practices, innovative use of new and emerging technologies, and continuous efforts to maintain financial strength
