BMH-GT gets national recognition for quality of patient care

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – Baptist Memorial Hospital Golden Triangle is getting national recognition for taking care of its patients.

The hospital has been recognized as a top performer in the Bernard A. Birnbaum Quality Leadership Ranking administered by Vizient.

Baptist was ranked tenth out of 148 hospitals in the Complex Care Medical Centers Category.

“I’m so very proud of our staff, our employees, and our physicians. I think one of the things that we want everybody to understand is this is our top priority. Taking care of patients, great clinical outcomes, and patient safety has always been our priority at Baptist Golden Triangle, and our team does a fantastic job of that focus every day,” said Paul Cade, CEO Administrator of BMH-GT.
