CoxHealth receives $31K grant

Posted online
The Cardinal Health Foundation has awarded CoxHealth a $31,500 grant to improve the hospital's operating room safety and efficiency, according to a news release from the hospital.

Funding will be used to implement the Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety program, developed by the U.S. Department of Defense Safety Program and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

“Implementing the Team STEPPS program will enhance operating room team performance, improve efficiency, promote effective communication and help us to continue to provide excellent patient care,” Tracy Mitchell, CoxHealth patient safety officer, said in the release.

The funding was issued through the Cardinal Health Foundation E3 Grant Program, which in 2011 has awarded more than $1 million in grants to about 40 health care providers in 20 states for the improvement of the effectiveness and efficiency of care provided to patients.

"The E3 Grant Program funding has been used by hundreds of health care organizations during the past three years to implement meaningful, long-term improvements in the way they care for patients,” said Shelley Bird, chairwoman of the Cardinal Health Foundation, in the release. “We congratulate CoxHealth for being selected as a grant recipient this year.”

The Cardinal Health Foundation, which is based in Dublin, Ohio, is the philanthropic arm of Cardinal Health Inc., which provides medical equipment and services and employs 30,000 people worldwide, according to its Web site.
