Cabell Huntington Hospital joins VON’s Quality Circle

Thursday, December 22, 2022

The Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) has once again been named a member of the Vermont Oxford Network (VON) Quality Circle. Quality Circle members pursue data-driven quality improvement projects and education to continuously enhance care processes and outcomes for infants and families.

“Through participation in the VON quality improvement collaborative, the NICU team at Cabell Huntington Hospital is demonstrating commitment to data-driven quality improvement with the potential to impact the care of every infant cared for by the team,” said Hoyt Burdick, MD, chief medical officer, Mountain Health Network. “As a VON Quality Circle member, our newborn care team collaborates with more than 100 other centers to share effective practices and help improve care for our youngest patients.”

As one of 100+ centers participating in the quality improvement collaborative, the NICU team will share the improvements made locally with other teams and learn from other participants. The team members will earn continuing education credits for participation in webinars, and the entire physician team is eligible for Maintenance of Certification credits.

As progress is made on the quality improvement project, Cabell Huntington Hospital will have the opportunity to be represented with a poster at the VON Annual Quality Congress, an annual conference of newborn care teams from around the world.
