FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Northside Hospital-Atlanta, Northside Hospital-Cherokee and Northside Hospital-Forsyth were each named “Top Performer on Key Quality Measures” by the Joint Commission (TJC), the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America.

The three hospitals were recognized by TJC for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.

“Our employees and physicians are committed to offering the safest quality care and positive patient outcomes,” said Bob Quattrocchi, president and chief executive officer, Northside Hospital Inc. “On the heels of other recognitions for quality that Northside has recently achieved, this distinction from the Joint Commission is further proof of their hard work.”

TJC recognizes accredited hospitals that attain and sustain excellence in accountability measure performance. The Northside Hospitals are among 1,099 hospitals in the nation being recognized for 2012 (the most recent report), representing the top 33 percent of TJC-accredited hospitals.
