Nursing at DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital
You can feel the difference when you enter DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital. We believe what sets us apart from other organizations is the collaboration and teamwork by the entire team. It takes every person coming together in a respectful and collaborative way to achieve our care outcomes that are meeting and exceeding the national benchmarks at this “small community hospital in the apple orchard”. The awards and achievements we have earned and the recognition we have enjoyed in 2010 are reflective of our quality outcomes.
These include the following:
- We were named by the Leapfrog Group, the nation's premier quality ranking agency, as one of only four hospitals in Michigan and one of only 65 hospitals nationally to achieve “Top Hospital” status. The Leapfrog hospital survey is the gold standard for comparing hospitals’ performance on the national standards of safety, quality, and efficiency. This designation was enjoyed by less than 2% of hospitals nationally.
- Forbes magazine reported that Huron Valley-Sinai was designated by HealthGrades, a hospital rating company, as being among the best hospitals in the country based on our low complication and mortality rates for a variety of procedures placing us in the top 5% of hospitals nationwide.
- Additionally, we are certified as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission; and accredited as a Chest Pain Center by the Society of Chest Pain Centers.
- The Detroit Medical Center (including Huron Valley-Sinai) was recognized for the fourth consecutive year as one of the nation's "Most Wired" hospitals.
The achievement we continue to be most proud of is our Designation as a Magnet hospital from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the highest honor that can be bestowed on Nursing. Magnet designation is an important acknowledgment of nurses' worth, and a seal of approval of quality patient care. Only 5% of all hospitals in the U.S. have attained this honor.
These awards and designations do not occur by accident; they are achieved as a result of hard work and dedication by the entire team.
