    Memorial Healthcare System has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, a national recognition that identifies outstanding employers in the healthcare industry. Memorial ranked highest in Florida and is the only healthcare system in South Florida to receive this recognition in 2020.

    “We are honored to be recognized in Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work for over a decade,” said Aurelio M. Fernandez, III, FACHE, president and CEO, Memorial Healthcare System. “Even with the unprecedented challenges brought on by COVID-19, our resilient, committed healthcare professionals never wavered, and have shown that together we can take care of each other and our community, no matter the unprecedented circumstances.”

We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for continuing to serve their workforce and communities during such an unprecedented time.”

    Memorial Cardiac & Vascular Institute Earns Highest Rating from Society of Thoracic Surgeons

    The Memorial Cardiac & Vascular Institute (MCVI) has earned three-star ratings for patient care and outcomes from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) in both isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) surgery and isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The designation, which recognizes the highest category of quality, places Memorial among the elite heart surgery programs in the United States and Canada.

    Historically, fewer than 10% of cardiothoracic surgical programs earn three stars from STS, a nonprofit organization that represents more than 7,300 surgeons, researchers, and allied healthcare professionals worldwide. Its highly-regarded rating system uses data from benchmarked outcomes and is calculated by combining numerous measurements of quality for specific procedures performed by cardiothoracic surgery programs in its database.

    MCVI has received consistently high ratings in the annual survey for more than 10 years. The current three-star designation in isolated AVR includes outcomes from a three-year period (January 2017-December 2019). The isolated CABG rating is for quality results in 2019 only. “The high-quality outcomes necessary to achieve this rating are a testament to the collaborative efforts of the entire cardiac surgery team,” said Dr. Michael Cortelli, chief of the Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute (MCVI).

    MCVI was the first facility in Broward County to offer heart transplantation services for adults and features a multi-disciplinary approach to total heart care that has delivered South Floridians outcomes that compare to the best in the U.S.

    “The Society of Thoracic Surgeons congratulates national database participants who have received three-star ratings,” said David M. Shahian, MD, chair of the Task Force on Quality Measurement. “Participation in the database and public reporting demonstrates a commitment to quality improvement in healthcare delivery and helps provide patients and their families with meaningful information to help them make informed decisions about healthcare.”

    Memorial Healthcare System Earns Most Wired Recognition

    The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has recognized Memorial Healthcare System with its Performance Excellence Award. The Hollywood-based provider was certified at level 9 (out of a maximum 10) in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program, a ranking that places it above 97% of the more than 30,000 organizations that participated in the annual survey.

    Memorial was the only one in Broward County certified at level 9 or higher and has been rated among the most wired healthcare systems in America for more than a decade.

    The CHIME program assesses how effectively organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities. Level nine and ten organizations are described in CHIME’s report as often being leaders in healthcare technology that actively push the industry forward.

    “We’ve had a longstanding commitment to implementing technology that benefits patients and families, so we’re pleased to again be considered among the most wired in the healthcare industry,” said Memorial Healthcare System CIO Jeffrey Sturman. “Especially this year, with the coronavirus pandemic, it’s more important than ever to lead in the digital space while so much is changing about how we deliver healthcare.” 

    Organizations at all stages of development, from early to industry leading, were surveyed by CHIME, an executive organization dedicated to serving senior healthcare IT leaders. Participants were judged on the adoption, integration, and impact of technologies in eight areas: infrastructure, security, business/disaster recovery, administrative/supply chain, analytics/data management, interoperability/population health, patient engagement, and clinical quality/safety.

    “The Digital Health Most Wired program underscores why healthcare organizations keep pushing themselves to be digital leaders and shows what amazing feats they can achieve,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “This certification recognizes exemplary performance in 2020.”

    CHIME believes its assessment enables organizations to benchmark their efforts against a defined, worldwide, industry standard in order to determine where to invest financial and human capital.
