Question Description

Application Paper: What Makes a Top 100 Hospital?

The best institutions strive for excellence. Every industry has its own definition of what excellence represents. For health care, excellence is often expressed by those that meet Six Sigma standards, win the Malcolm Baldrige award, seek ISO 9001 quality, and hospital accreditation.

Visit one of the websites of one of the top 100 hospitals. Review all of the available information on their site, e.g., the organization, its mission, vision, structure, services, staff, programs, etc.

After reviewing the hospital and health system, you may want to look at other hospital-specific data resources provided for you in the supplement document, such as hospital specific outcomes and safety ratings.

After your analysis, write a 2-4-page paper (excluding title and reference pages) on what you feel has made this facility a top 100 hospital, and how this facility demonstrates the Saint Leo University Core Value of Excellence.

All papers must be submitted in the APA format, which includes title page and reference page, with APA formatted references. Click hereto download the resources you will need for this assignment.
