Hallmark Health was one of only two hospitals in Massachusetts to be honored for significant contributions and mentorship of other hospitals in the areas of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), heart failure and surgical care. The local health care system was also cited as one of only 18 hospitals in Massachusetts for its exemplary commitment to the quality of care for patients with AMI, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care.
In addition, Hallmark Health was recognized for its participation and leadership in the development of the National Hospital Leadership Quality Assessment Tool.
The awarding organization, Masspro, is the federally designated health care quality improvement organization for Massachusetts that develops innovative solutions that transform patient care and improve safety, effectiveness and efficiency.
Hallmark Health was also previously recognized for quality by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, which named both Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital to the Hospital Honor Roll. This honor ranked both hospitals among the top institutions throughout New England.
