Bryan, TX, August 27, 2020 – St. Joseph Health Grimes and Burleson Hospitals were recently recognized by Premier Inc., a leading healthcare improvement company, for providing outstanding patient care.

St. Joseph Health Grimes Hospital was named a finalist for the 2020 QUEST® Award for High-Value Healthcare by Premier Inc. for providing outstanding patient care as a Critical Access Hospital and for achieving high rates of performance among its Critical Access Hospital peer group in Premier’s QUEST 2020 collaborative for mortality, readmissions, affordability and safety.

St. Joseph Health Burleson Hospital has been named a finalist for the 2020 QUEST® Award for High-Value Healthcare from Premier Inc. Burleson Hospital received finalist recognition for achieving top overall performance in four of the five areas measured in Premier’s QUEST 2020 collaborative, including affordability, effective care and coordination, prevention and treatment for leading causes of mortality, person and family experience, and patient safety.

“These accolades reinforce our commitment to reliably deliver the best care experience to the patients we serve,” said Theron Park, President & CEO of St. Joseph Health. “We are proud of the work Grimes Hospital and Burleson Hospital have done to continue improving patient outcomes and community health overall.”

Premier brings together 1,500 hospitals and health systems in multiple collaboratives, including QUEST, to leverage the power of collaboration on a national scale. Within these collaboratives, healthcare providers work with each other to develop, share and scale best practices that improve quality and safety, reduce costs and share risk. A recipient of The Joint Commission and National Quality Forum’s 2015 John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Award, QUEST was launched in 2008 to help health systems reliably deliver the most efficient, effective and caring experience for every patient, every time.
