During the past year, Florida Hospital Carrollwood has continued to develop a culture that is dedicated to quality and patient safety. From the development of a quality team to the creation of a Patient Safety Council and Rapid Response teams, the hospital’s leadership team has created a high standard of care for all patients.
“We are blessed with outstanding leaders who have an unwavering commitment to patient safety, experience, and quality. It’s an honor to be awarded the Leadership in Quality and Patient Safety award for our team’s amazing efforts,” said Joe Johnson, President and CEO of Florida Hospital Carrollwood. “With our focus on excellence, our team has created a focused patient safety leadership structure and has exceeded our goals for patient safety reporting.
