Congratulations to Norton Healthcare on NQF National Quality Healthcare Award
Now, more than ever, transparency, quality, safety and
patient-centered care are some of the most valuable characteristics
health care organizations aspire to attain. However, in 2011, one
organization stood out from those across the entire nation to receive
the prestigious National Quality Forum (NQF) National Quality Healthcare
Award. This year, the award went to our friends, and fellow
Kentuckians, at Norton Healthcare based in Louisville, Ky.
Our colleagues at Norton Healthcare are most deserving of this
distinguished award. On Sept. 15, Dr. Karpf, Jeff Norton and I had the
pleasure of supporting Norton Healthcare at the NQF Quality Healthcare
Award Celebration in Washington, D.C. As was highlighted during the
celebration, they are truly a trailblazer in quality improvement. At the
event, it was great to extend congratulations to Norton Healthcare
president and CEO Stephen Williams. There was an excellent crowd in
attendance at the Award Ceremony. I was pleased to see many familiar
faces from both Kentucky and from the Washington, DC health care
It is an honor and a pleasure to work with Mr. Williams and the team
at Norton Healthcare as we work together to improve health care for all
