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 truly exemplary.
