On May 28, the Niagara Health Quality Coalition released its eighth annual New York State Hospital Report Card (SM), and Corning Hospital once again achieved an Honor Roll rating. The hospital's place on this year's Honor Roll is the result of scoring better than the New York State average in managing postoperative pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis. Corning Hospital is the only Southern Tier hospital to earn an Honor Roll rating for the past six consecutive years.
"This is absolutely fabulous news," stated Shirley Magaña, Corning Hospital President & COO. "It is wonderful to see that Corning Hospital compares favorably to all hospitals in the state. This is another opportunity for us to publicly recognize the high quality of care provided by our physicians and staff. The entire hospital team should feel very proud to have been named to the Honor Roll for the sixth time."
