NHRMC Programs Receive Several Accolades

By Staff Reports, posted Aug 7, 2020
Several New Hanover Regional Medical Center departments and providers recently garnered state and national accolades for their work.
  • NHRMC Home Care was recognized by Strategic Health­care Programs (SHP) as a Superior Performer for achieving an overall patient satisfaction score that ranked in the top 20% of all eligible SHP clients in 2019. The annual SHPBest award program honors home health agencies that consistently provide high-quality service to their patients, officials said. The 2019 award recip­ients were determined by reviewing and ranking the overall satisfaction score for more than 3,000 home health providers.
  • New Hanover Regional’s Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital was named to Newsweek’s 2020 list of Best Maternity Care Hospitals, which recognizes facili­ties using 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Survey data. Those hospitals meet The Leapfrog Group’s standards for maternity care on evidence-based, nationally standardized metrics in­cluding for lower rates of early elec­tive delivery, NTSV C-section and episiotomy. “Each year thousands of mothers trust our care teams to deliver their babies with great skill, professionalism and compassion,” said Kristi Baker, administrator of NHRMC Betty H. Cameron Wom­en’s & Children’s Hospital. “We have outstanding providers and staff who have dedicated their careers to pro­viding high-quality care for all of our patients and their families, and we are honored to be recognized as one of the nation’s best maternity hospi­tals,” Kristi Baker, administrator of the Betty H. Cameron Women’s & Children’s Hospital, said in a state­ment.
  • Four NHRMC nurses were included in a list of 100 top nurses across the state compiled by The Great 100 Inc., which recognizes registered nurses in North Carolina. New Hanover Regional’s honorees were Mary Ellen Bonczek, chief nurse executive; Jessica Nowak, staff nurse and past chair of Nursing Congress; Colleen Mistovich, sexual assault nurse examiner program coordinator; and Kimberly Duggan, surgical home manager and patient navigator.
