BREMERTON, Wash.— Harrison Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) has earned prominent recognition for its commitment to providing exceptional patient care.
Harrison’s ICU was named a silver-level recipient of the Beacon Award for Excellence from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN). Out of 6,000 ICUs in the United States, only 197 them have received Beacon designations of any level, bronze, silver, or gold. Of that, only eight Beacon Awards have been bestowed to units in Washington state.
“This prestigious award affirms the very high-level of patient care our ICU provides,” said Harrison president and CEO Scott Bosch. "Our ICU staff exemplifies our values of empathy, innovation, and accountability. Congratulations to all on this significant achievement.”
This national, three-year designation recognizes critical care units that prove they have high standards in key areas, such as improved patient outcomes, continuous staff learning, and evidence-based practices and processes. Learn more about the Beacon Award at www.aacn.org/beacon.
