Bassett Medical Center awarded for dialysis program

Bassett Medical Center has been awarded the 2016 Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety award from the Healthcare Association of New York State. The program the medical center’s dialysis team initiated for end stage renal disease patients on dialysis significantly reduced hospitalizations, re-admissions and mortality for their patients. The award is given to encourage other hospitals to assess their procedures for improving care and lowering re-admission and hospitalization numbers.
