Sparta Community Hospital’s Emergency Department was recently awarded the SCH Quality Spotlight.  The Quality Spotlight is awarded to the department that has demonstrated achievement and improvement of key processes and performance.

In effort to increase both patient satisfaction and department efficiency, the Emergency Department staff measure the minutes from the time the patient arrives to the time they transfer patients out when higher level of care is needed.  The goal is to have patients in and out in 130 minutes or less.  The Emergency Department has beat their goal and has ranged from 119-126 minute patient turn around since January. Way to go team for continuing to provide excellent care!
