Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center Recognized by Vizient in 2021 Birnbaum Quality Leadership Performance Ranking


CHARLOTTE, NC – Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center announces that it has been recognized as a top performer in the 2021 Bernard A. Birnbaum, MD, Quality Leadership Annual Ranking by Vizient Inc. Mint Hill Medical Center was one of 226 Vizient members in the community hospital cohort to be recognized for demonstrating excellence in delivering high-quality care based on the Vizient Quality and Accountability Ranking, which has been conducted annually since 2005.

“We pride ourselves on quality, safety and remarkable care – and being recognized as a top performer for our hard work and dedication is an amazing accomplishment,” said Joy Greear, president and chief operating officer of Novant Health Mint Hill Medical Center. “The team members dedicate their careers to making a difference in the lives of our patients and their families in our community.”

This year, 565 participating hospitals were segmented into four cohorts for the Vizient Quality and Accountability Ranking. The ranking measured performance on the quality of patient care in five domains: safety, mortality, effectiveness, efficiency and patient centeredness. The ranking factors in measures from the Vizient Clinical Data Base and includes performance in core measures data, the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Healthcare Safety Network.

The Vizient Quality and Accountability Ranking helps participating hospitals and health systems understand their performance against their peers and identifies structures and processes associated with high performance in quality and safety across a broad spectrum of patient care activity. The recognition period is for work spanning July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021.

"As hospitals and health care systems continue to provide patient care during these unprecedented times, it's important to recognize their accomplishments," said David Levine, group senior vice president, analytics and data science for Vizient. "This year, all Vizient member accomplishments will be celebrated in November at the Vizient Connections Education Summit."
