• Jersey City Medical Center receives VoPE award

    Jersey City Medical Center: A Quality Hospital

     Residents of Jersey City are safe in the hands of Jersey City Medical Center Barnabas Health. As a member of the Barnabas Health system, the hospital was presented with the Vision of Performance Excellence Award (VoPE) on October 30th.

    VoPE is the highest possible achievement award that an organization can receive at the state level. It is based on the Malcolm Baldrige criteria for organizational excellence and quality. The seven criteria categories include leadership, strategic planning, customer and market focus, measurement analysis and knowledge, workforce focus, and operations process management and business results.  

    Jersey City Medical Center (JCMC) is New Jersey’s largest integrated health care delivery system. Providing services to more than two million patients every year, the hospital promises to deliver the best care with the slogan “I Am Quality.”

    Senior vice president of patient safety and quality improvement, Brenda Hall, was not surprised with the announcement. “Our team felt pursuing this award would reflect our commitment to provide the highest and consistent level of service and to insure patient safety, quality care, satisfaction and economic stability." Hall, who put the hospital forward for this award, also said, “The application process was supplemented by a week-long on-site review of the hospital’s performance by ten examiners in September.”

    JCMC president and CEO Joseph Scott added, “Barnabas Health is proud to be the only hospital to earn the VoPE award on the east coast. Obtaining the Vision of Performance Excellence Award requires a team effort from every department, from every employee at every level, and through partnership with volunteers including our Board of Trustees as well as community organizations.”

    The Jersey City hospital is also in the running for the national Malcolm Baldrige award for performance excellence.
