Comprehensive Pharmacy Services (CPS), the nation’s leading pharmacy services provider, recently recognized QHR client hospital Brazosport Regional Health System in Lake Jackson, Texas as the “2012 Site of the Year” for the Southern Region of the U.S. The award was presented to Brazosport Regional’s Director of Pharmacy, Gulnar Banglawala, who helped the hospital achieve a minimum 95 percent operations audit score; meeting or exceeding its budget; superior scores on The Joint Commission survey; and overall clinical success.
“We are honored to be chosen as the 2012 CPS Site of the Year,” said Al Guevara, president and chief executive officer of Brazosport Regional Health System. “The guidance and leadership from CPS, Gulnar and QHR have helped us contain costs and maintain high-quality care for our patients.”
CPS Regional Vice President MeiLien Yeh added, “We are proud of Gulnar’s commitment to build strong relationships with both Brazosport’s administration and with the medical and nursing staff. Her positive ‘can-do’ attitude has led to improved patient medication safety outcomes and cost-effective savings through several clinical and operational initiatives.”
