Centinela Hospital is proud to announce that at the November 7, 2012 Southern
California Patient Safety Collaborative meeting it was honored for its
work in reducing sepsis mortality and hospital associated infections in
its patient population. The Southern California Patient Safety Collaborative
(SCPSC) provides a forum for peer-to-peer learning, networking and sharing
of best practices to improve patient safety and clinical outcomes in the
areas of hospital acquired infections, surgical care and sepsis; care
transitions and perinatal safety.
Spearheaded by the Hospital Association of Southern California in January
2010, SCPSC helped to create the "Patient Safety First…a California
Partnership for Health" project. This statewide initiative provides
opportunities for hospitals to improve medical care, reduce costs and
establish a best practice model for hospitals across the state.
Linda Bradley, CEO of Centinela Hospital stated, "This award is indicative
of the teamwork and caring approach that Centinela's staff provides
to our patients. Their commitment to patient care and satisfaction is
