Milford Regional Receives Award on Quality Care and Patient Satisfaction

Milford Regional Medical Center (Milford Regional) received a healthcare achievement award for quality/patient care and patient satisfaction from Amerinet, a leading healthcare group purchasing organization. Amerinet grants these honors yearly in recognition of member excellence for commitment to the reduction of healthcare costs and improvements in the quality of patient care delivery.

The Healthcare Achievement Awards offer an opportunity for Amerinet to underscore acute and non-acute care member facilities that met the highest standard of excellence addressing a value-of-care mission. “These awards recognize and celebrate members who are innovators, collaborators and leaders,” said Todd Ebert, Amerinet president and CEO. “These nominees truly excelled at meeting the challenges of the healthcare industry delivering high-quality, cost-effective patient care.”

Milford Regional was recognized for redesigning how the Medical Center provides care for patients needing additional intravenous therapy. Rather than have patients return to the emergency department for this care, they now receive their IV therapy in a more convenient outpatient location. The response from both patients and staff to this new process has been extremely positive.

“Our multi-disciplinary team did a great job in developing a more patient friendly process for those requiring additional IV therapy treatments,” states Edward J. Kelly, president of Milford Regional. “This effort exemplifies the emphasis our staff places on providing quality, compassionate care. They are to be commended.”
