Middletown, NY- Orange Regional Medical Center has joined the New York State Partnership for Patients (NYSPFP), a statewide quality improvement initiative aimed at improving quality and patient safety by reducing complications and avoidable readmissions.
NYSPFP, a joint project of the Healthcare Association of New York State and Greater New York Hospital Association, is part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Partnership for Patients, a national initiative that seeks to reduce hospital-acquired conditions and preventable readmissions by helping patients heal without complications after being discharged. NYSPFP has invited key New York State health care stakeholders including regulators, clinicians, health insurers, hospital trustees and others to contribute to the project’s statewide success.
“We are extremely pleased to be a part of this initiative. It coincides with our mission in delivering quality care in a safe, compassionate, respectful and responsive manner,” says Orange Regional’s Vice President for Quality, Rosemary Baczewski.
NYSPFP will build upon existing quality improvement programs at hospitals across the state, focusing on key clinical areas as well as hospital leadership and culture, to support New York State hospitals as they continually strive to provide safe, high-quality care and improve outcomes.
