Chicot Memorial Medical Center has earned a Hospital CAUTI Reduction Award in the Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care’s annual Quality Awards program.

The Quality Awards are designed to recognize improvement in individual health care organizations’ performance in AFMC’s quality improvement projects. The Hospital CAUTI Reduction Award recognizes hospitals that have committed to focus efforts in the reduction of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI).

AFMC presented the award in a luncheon held April 5 as part of its annual Quality Conference in Little Rock.

Chicot Memorial Medical Center CEO David Mantz and Shirley Catalani, Director of Quality Performance, accepted the award on behalf of the hospital at an April 5 awards luncheon during the Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care’s Quality Conference in Little Rock last week.
