Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 13, 2014
CyraCom was honored with the Institute for Diversity in Health Management’s Corporate Partner Award during the Institute for Diversity in Health Management’s National Leadership and Education Conference, in Chicago.
“CyraCom’s efforts in language services in health care are to be commended,” said IFD President and CEO Frederick D. Hobby. “The organization’s dedication to promoting the importance of diversity and inclusion has been demonstrated by its enduring support of the Institute’s mission through financial resources, program participation, and by its efforts to develop awareness of the Institute with CyraCom clients.”
“CyraCom is honored to receive this recognition from the Institute for Diversity,” said Chairman and CEO Jeremy Woan. “We are proud to support the IFD and the goal to provide quality healthcare for people from all cultural backgrounds.”
The IFD recently commissioned the Diversity and Disparities benchmarking survey study of U.S. hospitals, which indicated that over 95 percent of hospitals collect primary language data from patients, and over 50 percent of hospitals have plans to improve the quality of care for culturally and linguistically diverse patient populations.
