Hampshire was one of just 14 out of more than 3,900 hospitals and health systems
in the nation to receive a 2018 Supply Chain Excellence Award® this
year. The award recognizes Hampshire’s achievements in sustaining
strong supply chain performance based on four industry standards for supply
expenses: percent of total operating expense; percent of net patient revenue;
adjusted patient days and adjusted discharges. Hospitals were grouped
by size and adjusted patient case-mix to ensure that organizations of
diverse sizes and complexity were considered equally.
“We are honored to have been recognized by
Premier for the role
Valley Health and Hampshire Memorial Hospital are playing in setting the standards for
excellence in purchasing and supply chain management in the country,”
says HMH President Tom Kluge. “Our team has worked diligently to
explore all options and adopt best practices to help reduce our supply
expenses while enhancing our services,” he adds.
In a press release from Premier, David A. Hargraves, senior vice president,
Supply Chain, said that Hampshire was “being recognized not only
for its advanced purchasing abilities but also for its continuous work
in collaborating to share best practices… and provide high quality
care at the best cost.”
Page Memorial Hospital was also one of just 14 hospitals in the nation to be recognized by Premier
as a finalist for the 2018
QUEST® Award for High-Value Healthcare for consistently providing outstanding patient care and setting high standards
in clinical excellence.
Page was selected as a finalist for achieving top overall performance in four
of the five measured categories: effective care and coordination, prevention
and treatment for leading causes of mortality, patient and family experience
and patient safety. There were just two hospitals in the country to receive
awards for meeting all five categories, which includes affordability.

"For a critical access hospital such as Page to be included in the
ranks of some of the largest, most prestigious health care systems in
the country is just amazing and is a true testament to the quality work
that is being done not just here in Luray, but throughout Valley Health,"
notes PMH President Travis Clark. "I want to congratulate all of
our team members here at Page for faithfully living our mission and values
every day, and I'd like to thank everyone at Valley Health, including
our service line providers, corporate departments and administration for
their undeniable commitment to ensuring that we are all healthier together!"
In a press release from
Premier, Madeleine Biondolillo, MD, Vice President of Engagement and Delivery,
stated that “QUEST facilities are setting new standards of clinical
excellence nationwide [and] together, they have worked to outperform in
healthcare. Premier congratulates Page for their fantastic achievements.
