EHMC Statement to Press Re: HUMC/PVH Issue

Contact: Maria Margiotta
201.894.3524  

Englewood, NJ, October 19, 2011 -- We expect a well-orchestrated turnout by the employees of HUMC, local supporters and residents from the Westwood area at today's public hearing. We suspect if you were considering a new hospital in any town, a similar supportive crowd would turn out. However, pep rallies and large community demonstration of support cannot be considered under New Jersey law as a factor in determining if a Certificate of Need (CN) should be issued.

Physician Survey

EHMC extends a thank you to the physicians who participated in our 2011 Medical Staff Satisfaction Survey. The results give us many reasons to celebrate and, just as importantly, identified areas needing improvement. In our 2005 survey, doctors pointed to two key areas needing improvement: ER and Information Technology. EHMC acted on their input and we now have our new state-of-the-art Emergency are Center and are about to implement a comprehensive Clinical Information System that will transform clinical and financial operations across the continuum of care. In that spirit, the Medical Center has developed Action Plans to address areas identified as needing improvement in the most recent physician survey. Information on Action Plan progress will be shared with Medical Staff on a regular basis.  Reasons to Celebrate!  Areas below are among those identified as high performing by EHMC physicians completing the survey:

 95th percentile: Overall quality of Laboratory and Pathology service.

 94th percentile: Overall quality of OR.

 93rd percentile: Overall quality of Radiology services.

 90th percentile: Anesthesiology services.

 89th percentile: Quality of Medical Staff in ED

 88th percentile: Overall quality of ED.

 84th percentile: Likelihood to recommend EHMC to others.

 79th percentile: Communication between ED doctors and Medical Staff.
