South Florida Hospital News and Healthcare Report - WEEKLY UPDATE NEWSLETTER MONDAY JULY 16, 2018


Baptist Health South Florida today inaugurated the much-anticipated South Beach urgent care, diagnostic and outpatient center on Alton Road. The four-story, 60,000-square-foot wellness and medical complex brings a new level of service and accessibility to health care in the southern part of Miami Beach.
“The Miami Beach facility epitomizes the health care delivery model of the future,” said Ana Lopez-Blazquez, executive vice president and chief strategy & transformation officer. “It brings primary care, urgent care, diagnostic imaging, endoscopy, physical therapy and other services to where people live.”
Comprehensive Care at Sleep Center Recognized by National Commission 
The Jupiter Medical Center Sleep Center has received accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) for sleep testing and sleep lab/center services. Receiving this accreditation demonstrates that Jupiter Medical Center has met the high standards of the ACHC for performance and patient care.
Established in 1990, the Jupiter Medical Center Sleep Center is a hospital-based facility serving Palm Beach and Martin counties. The focus of the center is to diagnose and treat sleep-related disorders, and help every patient achieve restful sleep in order to maintain good health and well-being.

Broward Health is pleased to present this year’s Brightest Star Award to seven employees selected for being outstanding examples of Broward Health Five Star Values - a group of core standards that promotes the system’s commitment to provide quality healthcare to all they serve.

“Our Brightest Stars set the standard for excellence in patient care,” said Broward Health President/CEO Beverly Capasso. “Each honoree has demonstrated individual acts of heroism, courage, kindness and generosity. They all understand that patients are at the heart of everything we do and strived to make a difference in their patients’ lives.”
The awards, presented by Capasso and Broward Health Commissioner Nancy Gregoire, represent the highest honor within the system’s robust employee recognition program. As one of Broward County’s largest employers, with a workforce of more than 8,400 employees, Broward Health proudly recognized the following seven honorees for their achievement: 
Proposed changes to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program would streamline clinician billing and expand access to high-quality care 
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed historic changes that would increase the amount of time that doctors and other clinicians can spend with their patients by reducing the burden of paperwork that clinicians face when billing Medicare. The proposed rules would fundamentally improve the nation’s healthcare system and help restore the doctor-patient relationship by empowering clinicians to use their electronic health records (EHRs) to document clinically meaningful information, instead of information that is only for billing purposes.

Broward Health has named Kim Braxl Cole, CPA, as chief financial officer of Broward Health North.   

In her position as CFO, Cole will be responsible for directing the coordination of onsite financial services to ensure sound fiscal management of Broward Health North. She will work closely with the leadership team to further cultivate an environment of operational efficiency and strong financial results. 
Coral Gables Hospital achieves high honors from its parent company by being named to Tenet Healthcare’s prestigious 2018 Circle of Excellence.  Coral Gables Hospital earned this recognition by excelling in both clinical and operational performance over the past year.

Palmetto General Hospital achieves high honors from its parent company by being named to Tenet Healthcare’s prestigious 2018 Circle of Excellence.  Palmetto General Hospital earned this recognition by excelling in both clinical and operational performance over the past year.
