HCA Hernando/Pasco County hospitals were named among the nation's top performers on key quality measures for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care by The Joint Commission (JC), the leading accreditation organization of health care entities in America.

Oak Hill Hospital, among the hospital facilities recognized as one of the nation's top performers on four key quality measures, is the only one in Hernando and Citrus Counties.

Community Hospital, the future Medical Center of Trinity, and Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point are the only hospitals in Pasco County to achieve excellence on all four of the adult quality measures.

Out of 3,099 hospitals submitting accountability data to the JC, HCA Hernando/Pasco County hospitals are among only 405 hospitals earning the distinction of top performer on key quality measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. Inclusion on the list is based on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported during the previous calendar year.

To be recognized as a top performer on key quality measures an organization must meet 95 percent or more on performance thresholds on accountability measure data. Community Hospital, Oak Hill Hospital, and Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point were recognized for achieving these performance thresholds for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.

In addition to being included in the release of the JC's "Improving America's Hospitals" annual report, HCA Hernando/Pasco County hospitals will be recognized on the JC's Quality Check website: qualitycheck.org.

Oak Hill Hospital is located at 11375 Cortez Boulevard, Spring Hill, 1.9 miles east of US 19 on State Road 50.
