Providence Memorial Hospital Wins 2013 Tenet Clinical Innovation Award
Providence Memorial Hospital is proud to announce that it has been awarded the 2013 Tenet Clinical Innovation Award, an honor only given to four Tenet hospitals nationwide. This award recognizes Providence Memorial Hospital’s Patient Care Technician Program, which improved employee satisfaction and reduced turnover by increasing the nursing skill set.
The Patient Care Technician Program was done in conjunction with the El Paso Community College and is easy to replicate, making this a successful and applicable innovative contribution to healthcare in our community.
Tenet Healthcare Corporation’s review found tangible evidence of Providence Memorial Hospital’s commitment to clinical innovation which helps set the standard for other hospitals to follow. Tenet Healthcare Corporation is one of the largest investor-owned health care delivery systems in the nation.
“This recognition is a testament to the hard work, dedication and tireless devotion of our clinicians and staff to our patients,” said Providence Memorial Hospital CEO, Eric Evans. “As healthcare reform moves forward, our industry will be challenged to innovate, and I am very proud of the fact that our staff is constantly seeking new and better ways to do things for our patients.”
