Boulevard Temple Receives Excellence Award

March 14th, 2014, at Henry Ford Health System’s Annual Health Care Coordination Summit, Boulevard Temple received the Excellence Award in recognition of outstanding commitment to improve Quality of Care and Reducing Avoidable re-hospitalizations.
In 2012 Boulevard Temple opened their sub-acute unit and implemented the CHF & Sub-acute pathways.  They have provided ongoing education and training for their nurses to enhance their assessment skills and partnered with the hospital on numerous quality improvement pilots.
A couple of those pilots included the 1st fill program and the PICC and PEG program.  Both pilots have been very successful and have gone on to become programs throughout the Henry Ford System.  Boulevard Temple also established quality improvement processes, conducted root cause analysis, and identified areas of opportunity and in doing so they reduced their hospital re-admission rate by 7.5% from 2012 to 2013.
Please join us in congratulating Lisa Dimitrie, Linda Williams and Team Boulevard Temple for their commitment to
EXCELLENCE
