Sibley Memorial Hospital has been recognized for excellence in quality health care by the Delmarva Foundation of the District of Columbia, receiving the organization’s 2014 Delmarva Foundation Excellence Award for Quality Improvement. Sibley also received the award last year. Sibley was the only D.C. hospital to receive the coveted award this year.
The award recognizes individual hospitals that excel in 14 measures related to patient safety and quality improvement in five national inpatient clinical areas—heart failure, surgical care improvement, pneumonia and immunization.

"Recipients of this award possess a strong commitment to excellence and to improving the quality of care for their patients.

"This is a wonderful recognition of the unwavering commitment our physicians, nurses and staff have to our patients," said Richard O. Davis, Ph.D., president of Sibley Memorial Hospital.
