QHR client hospital Cary Medical Center (Caribou, ME) earned a "Tier One" status as a preferred Maine hospital by the Maine Health Management Coalition (MHMC) and was recently honored with an A Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group.

Cary Medical Center has received MHMC's ‘Tier One' designation since 2006. MHMC is a charitable organization, which publically reports quality information on Maine doctors and hospitals to empower the public to make informed decisions about the care they receive. MHMC's survey measures issues such as patient satisfaction, patient safety and clinical quality.

The hospital has received an "A" from The Leapfrog Group for four consecutive years. The Leapfrog Hospital Survey compares hospitals’ performance on the national standards of safety, quality, and efficiency that are most relevant to consumers and purchasers of care.

"Cary Medical Center is a true national leader in demonstrating how hospitals can achieve quality and patient safety in today's healthcare environment," said Mickey Bilbrey, President and CEO of Quorum Health Resources. "Consumers want transparency and we are proud of the entire team at Cary Medical Center for continually being recognized as a leader in quality and patient safety."

Kris Doody, RN, MSB, FACHE and Chief Executive Officer of Cary Medical Center explained, "I believe hospitals will continue to be under the microscope of public accountability. That is why Cary presents our quality ratings through our web site. Patients and families have a right to this information and should use it to make more informed decisions."

Doody added, "To have this level of consistent performance over the years is clear evidence that our staff and our entire team, bring a passion and calling to the work they are doing. It just has become a way of life here. We could not be prouder of our staff and we salute them for these outstanding achievements."
