SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Phelps Memorial Hospital Center was recently recognized as a 2014 'Top Performer on Key Quality Measures' by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations in the United States.

The Joint Commission included Phelps in its 2015 annual report America’s Hospitals: Improving Quality and Safety. Phelps was given the award based on the hospital’s success in attaining and sustaining excellence in heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, hospital-based psychiatric care and immunizations.

“For the staff at Phelps, quality and patient safety are the number-one priority. We strive to achieve positive patient outcomes by following care processes that have been proven effective,” says Daniel Blum, Phelps President & CEO. “It is gratifying to be named a Top Performer, because it validates the teamwork, knowledge and dedication of all who care for our patients.”

"I commend the efforts of Phelps Hospital for their excellent performance on the use of evidence-based interventions,” said Dr. Mark R. Chassin, president and CEO of The Joint Commission.

Phelps is one of only 1,043 hospitals out of more than 3,300 eligible hospitals in the United States to achieve the 2014 Top Performer distinction, and one of only four in Westchester County. This is the second year in a row they have achieved the distinction.
