Kaleida Health has received the 2021 PIVOT Award from DNV Healthcare USA Inc.
The PIVOT Award (Progressive, Innovative, Valuable, Opportune, and Transformative) is given to a hospital or healthcare system that quickly implements new ways to meet patient, community and staff needs. The newly-created award recognizes the extraordinary efforts hospitals put in place in responding to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout the pandemic, Kaleida Health has transformed its operations, coming together with others in the community to manage the overwhelming number of patients to be treated.
“As Kaleida Health pivoted to respond, it was critical to effectively communicate internally and externally,” said Bob Nesselbush, CEO of Kaleida Health. “Our teams were innovative and decisive on how they handled clinical care, applying a risk-based approach and always remaining focused on the wellness and resiliency of our heroic healthcare workers.”
Some of Kaleida Health’s noteworthy collaborative community efforts included:
“We are proud of Kaleida Health as they epitomize what we wanted to recognize with this award,” said DNV Healthcare USA President Patrick Horine. “Award applicants all demonstrated innovation, responsiveness, and putting actions in place that improved hospital operations and the quality of care they provided to their patients. They should not only be lauded, but it is hoped that other members of the provider community adopt their initiatives as well. Patient care and outcomes can only improve by doing so.”
The award was announced and celebrated during DNV’s recent annual healthcare symposium in Reno, Nevada.
