Mary Greeley Named 'Top Performer' for Third Consecutive Year

The Joint Commission Gold SealMary Greeley Medical Center has been recognized as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in the United States.

Mary Greeley was recognized as a 2014 Top Performer in The Joint Commission’s 2015 annual report. The medical center is among 1,043 hospitals in the U.S. to achieve the 2014 Top Performer distinction, and one of only 12 hospitals in Iowa.

Mary Greeley was recognized in the categories of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and perinatal care.

“We are proud to once again be named a Top Performer because it recognizes the consistent skill, teamwork, commitment and compassion that everyone on our hospital staff and our physicians bring to patient care every day,” says Brian Dieter, Mary Greeley Medical Center president and CEO.

The Joint Commission named Mary Greeley a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for 2012 and 2013.

“Delivering the right treatment in the right way at the right time is a cornerstone of high-quality health care. I commend the efforts of Mary Greeley Medical Center for their excellent performance on the use of evidence-based interventions,” said Mark R. Chassin, president and CEO of The Joint Commission.

Mary Greeley also recently received an “A” grade for Patient Safety from the Leapfrog Group for the eighth consecutive time. Mary Greeley is the only Iowa hospital to earn an “A” grade in every Leapfrog Hospital Safety Score report, which has been issued twice a year since 2012.
