Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers received a 2018 Excellence in Patient Care Award for pain management at Studer Group’s 16th annual "What’s Right in Health Care" conference held Aug. 21 to Aug. 23 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Studer Group presents the awards annually to organizations that achieve a ranking at or above the 90th percentile on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems patient experience survey that all hospitals conduct as required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

The 2018 award is based on surveys for patients discharged in 2017.

Studer Group, a Huron solution, is an outcomes-based healthcare performance improvement firm that partners with healthcare organizations in the United States, Canada, and beyond, teaching them how to achieve, sustain, and accelerate exceptional clinical, operational, and financial results.

Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers has been partnering with Studer Group since 2006.
