Partnership for Patients Excellence Awards

More than 100 hospitals across Minnesota are participating in the Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network focused on improving 10 hospital acquired conditions. The goals of the campaign are to:

  • Decrease preventable hospital acquired conditions by 40 percent
  • Decrease hospital readmissions by 20 percent   

There are 108 hospitals that have reached the goal on at least one hospital acquired condition. Of those, 72 have demonstrated high performance on three or more hospital acquired conditions. Those hospitals will receive a certificate of excellence. View the table below to see hospitals and their goals reached.
