FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LUTHERAN MEDICAL RECEIVES TOP 100 HONORS FOR 6TH YEAR IN A ROW
LMC once again named a CVI Top 100 Hospital and "Five-Star" facility
July 29, 2011, Brooklyn, NY
For the sixth year in a row, Lutheran Medical Center has been recognized as a Community Value Index (CVI) Top 100 Hospital. Scoring in the top twenty percent, it has also been designated a "Five Star" facility.
"This award is a testament to our unrelenting efforts to provide high quality care in a cost efficient manner to all of our neighbors," said Wendy Z. Goldstein, president and CEO. "Receiving the honor of the CVI Top 100 and Five Star distinctions six years in a row, especially while the health care industry struggles and safety net hospitals are at risk, reinforces how vital Lutheran is to the vibrant community of southwest Brooklyn."
The CVI is a proprietary index created to offer a measure of the value that a hospital provides its community. Fundamentally, the CVI suggests that a hospital provides value to the community when it is financially viable, is appropriately reinvesting back into the facility, maintains a low cost structure, has reasonable charges, and provides high quality care to patients.
