Holy Cross Hospital Updates

Board review by Bill and Steve

In an effort to help our community understand the changes happening in health care and at the hospital, we will be posting regular updates from the administration at Holy Cross Hospital to help share some internal information with the public.

These are the updates on the Board Meeting on December 9, 2015.


Holy Cross Hospital Top Performer for Patient Safety in New Mexico According to Leapfrog's Fall 2015 National Hospital Safety Score

Patient safety is about how hospitals and other health care organizations protect their patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. Strong health care teams reduce infection rates, put checks in place to prevent mistakes, and ensure strong lines of communication between hospital staff, patients, and families. The Leapfrog Group has announced its hospital safety scores for all eligible hospitals in the U.S., and Holy Cross Hospital was one of four hospitals in New Mexico to receive a B (there were no A’s).

Community Health Needs Assesment

Taos Health Systems recently completed an assessment of health needs for residents in Taos County. We have also developed a plan for using its services to respond to the significant community needs identified in the report.  A copy of the report is available for your review here and is available for inspection and copying in the hospital’s administrative office, M-F, 9 am to 4 pm.

Taos Health Systems will revise its implementation efforts each year and undertake a new study to revise this report in two to three years. Your review is encouraged and submission of comments for consideration is welcomed.  Please take the time to review the needs identified in the report and help the hospital take actions to make improvements resulting in Taos County being an increasingly healthy place to live.
