PSI partner Sutter Health listed by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of the “50 great health systems to know”

Pathology Services Incorporated partners with hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, and physicians’ offices throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. PSI doesn’t partner with just any organization. The health care providers supported by PSI’s team of world-renowned pathologists regularly earn recognition from third-party sources for clinical and industry excellence.

This summer Becker’s Hospital Review recognized Sacramento-based Sutter Health as among its “50 Great Health Systems to Know.” The recognized systems did not pay for a place on the list. They had to earn their spot. A family of leading industry publications, Becker’s Healthcare solicited suggestions for top systems from healthcare leaders. The editorial team also considered each system’s respective history of honors for excellence.

Sutter Health spans 50,000 physicians, employees, and volunteers across its 24 hospitals, 33 ambulatory surgery centers, and numerous specialty cardiac, cancer, behavioral health, and rehabilitation centers. PSI has had the privilege of developing a close working relationship with some of these first-rate providers, including Alta Bates Summit Medical Center’s Ashby and Summit campuses in Berkeley and Oakland respectively.

PSI is also proud to play a role in Sutter Health’s success by providing a range of histology, histochemistry and Immunoperoxidase, anatomic pathology, and cytopathology services. The team, which includes authorities in the field of Drs. Jerome Burke, and Richard Hildebrandt, takes great pride in providing personalized services, quick turnaround, and a continuity of lab solutions that have enabled PSI to live its mission of: “Our patients ARE more than a bar code.”

A factor behind Sutter Health being listed as one of the 50 great health systems to know, is its record of industry honors, the care network was named a Top 10 “Bold” organization by the National Center for Healthcare Leadership in 2014. Sutter Health earned this honor for its use of “evidence-based leadership practices” to achieve what the NCHL characterized as improved quality of care for residents of the communities it serves throughout Northern California.

Two of its hospitals were named to Truven Health Analytics’ Top 100 Hospitals List for 2015, while 13 hospitals within the network earned Top Performers for Quality in Health Care from The Joint Commission, a not-for-profit that independently accredits and certifies around 21,000 health care organizations and programs throughout the U.S.

Another distinguishing factor responsible for this latest recognition, Sutter Health’s reputation for general and clinical excellence among accomplished peers, the system has invested $4.7 billion in new and improved facilities to meet the needs of the growing and diverse communities it serves. These projects have resulted in the creation of more than 130,000 high-wage earning quality construction jobs.

As an extension of partner organizations, PSI is proud to be a part of one of only 5 systems in the state to be recognized by Becker’s. Sutter Health is also one of only 11 systems across the 3-state Pacific Coast region to be recognized as “Good to Know.” Get to know Sutter Health and you’ll also become acquainted with the values of personalized attention, diligence, and care that has allowed PSI to still be going strong 30 years on.
