The Joint Commission has ranked Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, New York, as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for the second year in a row. One of the foremost health care organization accreditors in the United States, The Joint Commission works with more than 20,500 such organizations. Mercy Medical Center was one of four hospitals on Long Island to earn the Top Performer designation. Like Mercy, two of those hospitals, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip and St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, are Catholic Health Services facilities.
The Joint Commission calculated its ratings using accountability measure data collected during 2013. Mercy scored high in measures for pneumonia, surgical care, heart failure, and heart attack. Moreover, it achieved a score of 95 percent or higher for its overall performance threshold.
Mercy has received several other accolades recently, including the 2013 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer and the American Nursing Credentialing Center’s Pathway to Excellence designation.
