Methodist North Surgery Center and Methodist Germantown Surgery Center are recipients of the 2013 Bernard A. Kershner Innovations in Quality Improvement Award in the surgical/procedural category. Terrye Parrish, clinical compliance coordinator with Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, entered the winning study “Safely Implanting Vendor-Owned Surgical Implants.’ It was selected from 41 entries.

“Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare and its physician partners are on a journey to improve quality, outcomes, and safety for all of our patients,” said Mitch Graves, president of affiliated services. “Terrye’s work is a great example of what can be accomplished not just for our surgery centers but can be shared with all surgery centers.”
