Fairfield Memorial Hospital Honored for Excellence in Quality of Care and Top Performance

The Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network (ICAHN) recently recognized Fairfield Memorial Hospital for its ongoing commitment to exceptional quality of care, during a ceremony held at the I Hotel and Conference Center, Champaign, IL. The Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) is a quality improvement activity under the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) grant program of the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP). The goal of MBQIP is to improve the quality of care provided in critical access hospitals (CAHs), by increasing quality data reporting by CAHs and then driving quality improvement activities based on the data. This project provides an opportunity for individual hospitals to look at their own data, measure their outcomes against other CAHs and partner with other hospitals in the state around quality improvement initiatives to improve outcomes and provide the highest quality care to each and every one of their patients.

Fairfield Memorial Hospital was recognized for its quality of care outcomes (for participating in all measures in all four domains) and for demonstrating top performance over two quarters in any domain (as is demonstrated by a >95% quality score.

“At Fairfield Memorial Hospital, our team strives to achieve this level of excellence in health quality,” said Katherine Bunting, Ph.D., CEO of Fairfield Memorial Hospital. “It is truly an honor for our team to be recognized for their dedication to delivering a healthcare experience that our patients, staff, and community can be proud of.”

ICAHN is a network of 55 small rural Illinois hospitals dedicated to strengthening the operations of its member hospitals through collaboration. The organization is composed of Illinois hospitals who have earned critical access hospital designation by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. ICAHN is recognized nationally for its work with rural healthcare and administers several state, federal, and private healthcare programs.
