McKee Medical Center and a Banner Health Clinic in Greeley honored
LOVELAND, CO (June 26, 2014) – Two Northern Colorado facilities earned top honors at Banner Health’s annual awards ceremony last week.
McKee Medical Center in Loveland and Greeley’s Banner Health Clinic specializing in Pediatrics both received Banner’s Best of the Best awards, which recognizes the health care organization’s hospitals, and health centers and clinics that demonstrate consistent, and overall high performance.
The leadership team of Banner Health presented the awards June 17 as part of the organization’s 2014 Leadership Conference in Phoenix.
This is the first year Banner has awarded Best of the Best honors to Banner Health Centers and Clinics, which include employed providers from the growing Banner Medical Group. McKee has received the Best of the Best award four times with its previous honors occurring in 2008, 2009 and 2012. North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley received the award in 2011 and 2013.
“I am so proud of McKee and our entire Northern Colorado team,” said Michelle Joy, chief operating officer for McKee Medical Center. “Our Northern Colorado hospitals have now received the award six of the last seven years. It’s a great testament to the high quality care and excellent service our staff delivers to our patients every day.”
The categories included large hospitals with more than $100 million in revenue, small hospitals with less than $100 million in revenue, and clinics within the Banner Medical Group. McKee received the award in the large hospital category while Greeley’s Banner Health Clinic specializing in Pediatrics received the Banner Medical Group award. Banner Ironwood Medical Center in Maricopa, AZ, received the award in the small hospital category.
“As the health care industry continues to evolve, one constant is our providers’ dedication to meeting the needs of our patients,” said Scott Baker, vice president of operations for Banner Medical Group in the company’s Western Region. “We look forward to continuing to provide high quality, coordinated health care to our patients for years to come.”
