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 community.

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 Kentuckians.
