Riverside Doctors’ Hospital Williamsburg has won a national award for its high-level of patient care, according to a Riverside Doctors’ Hospital news release.

The hospital has received the 2017 QUEST award for “high-value healthcare” from Premier Inc., a company focused on healthcare improvement, the release said.

Six hospitals nationwide received the award.

“Caring for others as we would care for those we love is our mission — and we demonstrate that belief countless times each day through our actions,” Bill Downey, president and CEO of Riverside Health System, said in the news release. “I congratulate every team member of Doctors’ Hospital, they should be proud of this award — it is testament to their undeniable level of commitment to the families and patients they serve.”

The award is based on data provided by participating hospitals from October 2015 to September 2016, the release said. About 350 other hospitals in the country provided data to Premier.

Criteria for the award include “cost and efficiency, evidence-based care, mortality, safety, patient and family engagement and appropriate hospital use,” the release said.

Riverside Doctors’ Hospital in Williamsburg received the award at Premier’s annual conference on June 27, according to the release.
