Golisano Children's Hospital and Strong Memorial Hospital recognized as 'Gold Safe Sleep Champions'
UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital and Strong Memorial Hospital’s Obstetrics Division were recently recognized by the National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program as “Gold Safe Sleep Champions,” the highest designation, for their commitment to best practices and education on infant safe sleep.
Golisano Children’s Hospital is a Top Level Patient-Centered Medical Home
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has accredited the Golisano Children’s Hospital Pediatric Practice as a Patient-Centered Medical Home Level III under the 2014 standards. Since the practice received their first designation in 2010, they have been committed to transforming the practice culture to one of patient centeredness and team based care. These efforts include care coordination, accessibility to appointments, utilization of technology, and a proactive approach focusing on preventative care. As the shape of healthcare continues to change, the Pediatric Practice remains dedicated to providing excellent care to the children in this community.
We have been re-designated as Magnet® hospital. The achievement reflects Strong’s high quality of patient care, outstanding nursing standards and practice, and supportive environment for its 2,200 nursing professionals. Fewer than 7 percent of American hospitals have received this honor from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
