(Fremont County, Wyo.) – For the second consecutive year, Lander Regional and Riverton Memorial Hospitals were presented with a hospital quality award from Mountain-Pacific Quality Health during the Wyoming Hospital Association convention in Sheridan in September.
Both hospitals were awarded the Commitment to Quality Award for their outstanding performance in giving excellent care in the nationally measured areas of heart failure, pneumonia, acute myocardial infarction, infections prevention and surgical complications. The award also recognizes the hospitals’ strong leadership support for quality and patient safety.
“I’m extremely proud of the quality of care we provide in both Fremont County hospitals,” Steve Erixon, CEO for Lander Regional Hospital and Riverton Memorial Hospital, said. “Quality and patient safety are at the forefront of our operations each day, and it’s nice to be recognized for our efforts.”
This is the 11th year Mountain-Pacific has presented Wyoming medical facilities with Hospital Quality Awards.
