TITUSVILLE  – Parrish Healthcare has earned global recognition as a High Reliability Organization (HRO) Champion by the Patient Safety Movement Foundation (PSMF).

Recognized at the 2022 World Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit (WPSSTS) held April 29-30, 2022, Parrish Healthcare was one of five of global hospitals and health systems affiliated with PSMF recognized as HRO Champions.

The PSMF gives their recognition to hospitals and healthcare organizations who demonstrate transparency around patient safety data and who have made their own commitments to reach the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s vision of ZERO preventable harm and death across the globe by 2030. 

“We are honored to be designated an HRO Champion by the Patient Safety Movement Foundation,” said George Mikitarian, CEO of Parrish Healthcare, “We believe that sharing patient safety data outside of our organizational walls will help advance patient safety around the world.”

The 2022 WPSSTS was co-convened by the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the European Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, the International Society for Quality in Health Care and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists. The summit served a forum to celebrate the Patient Safety Movement Foundation’s first 10 years of achievements and to confront leading patient safety issues with actionable ideas and innovations to transform the continuum of care by dramatically improving patient safety and eliminating preventable patient harm and death.

Parrish Healthcare has been affiliated with the PSMF since 2015 and has earned a number of recognitions from them including the first to earn PSMF five-star hospital ranking and being the first hospital to commit to all PSMF Actionable Patient Safety Solutions.
