The Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network (ICAHN) recently recognized Pinckneyville Community Hospital District for its ongoing commitment to exceptional quality of care.

As part of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Program, Pinckneyville Community Hospital District and other critical access hospitals were asked to voluntarily participate in four defined domains of quality outcomes. These four domains include patient safety/inpatient, patient engagement, care transitions and outpatient measures.

PCHD was recognized for its quality of care outcomes (for participating in all measures in all four domains), for demonstrating top performance over two quarters in any domain (as is demonstrated by a more than 95 percent quality score), and as the most improved over four quarters in any one measure or domain.

“We are very proud of our team for achieving this level of excellence in health quality,” CEO Randall Dauby said in a news release. “This is truly a team effort that recognizes our dedication to delivering a healthcare experience that our patients and staff can be proud of.”
