For the first time, Quorum Health Resources (QHR) client hospital Lane Regional Medical Center was honored with the Nightingale Award for "2013 Acute Care Hospital of the Year," (61-160 beds) in February 2013. The 12th annual Nightingale Awards was sponsored by the Louisiana Nurses Foundation and the Louisiana State Nurses Association to recognize excellence in nursing and quality service in the nursing and healthcare industry.
"Lane Regional Medical Center seeks to provide progressive, competent and caring healthcare service to the patients we serve," said Jennifer Johnson, Chief Nursing Officer. "Nurses at Lane are the embodiment of these to the patient at the point of care. It is an honor and privilege for me to lead and work with the outstanding nursing staff at Lane."
“We are proud of this recognition on the state-wide level,” said Randy Olson, Chief Executive Officer. “We have a phenomenal group of professionals who work at Lane, and it is great that the judges from outside Louisiana confirmed that by this Award. Our efforts are ongoing to ensure the patients who receive services here are giving the very best care possible at all times.”
"This award proves that a community hospital is more than capable of providing high-quality patient care," said QHR President and CEO James L. Horrar. "QHR is proud to support Lane Regional's efforts to achieve such successful outcomes."
The Nightingale Award for Acute Care Hospital of the Year is based on five criteria including: innovation through nursing leadership and management; organizational support of nursing practice; evidence of registered nurse decision making and participation in management decisions; recognition of registered nurse achievements; and support of nursing participation in professional organizations.
