OSF HealthCare St. Mary Medical Center Wins Silver at 2017 Ozzie Awards

Partners In Leadership awards hospital prestigious 2017 Ozzie Award for overcoming obstacles and achieving culture change and growth.

Temecula, Calif. May 16, 2017 — Partners In Leadership, the Accountability Training and Culture Change Company, awarded the 2017 Silver Ozzie Award in the healthcare category to OSF HealthCare St. Mary Medical Center, an Illinois acute care hospital dedicated to providing the best care for every patient. The Ozzie Awards celebrate organizations that demonstrate excellence in accountability, leadership and culture through implementation of Partners In Leadership programs.

"In a busy hospital setting, it is difficult to maintain the consistent engagement needed to achieve culture change," said Jared Jones, Senior Partner and Practice Leader for Partners In Leadership. "OSF has done an excellent job overcoming that hurdle by using digital tools to facilitate their transition."

As a result of its cultural efforts, OSF HealthCare St. Mary Medical Center has increased its scores in both staff engagement and patient satisfaction. It has also received numerous awards for safety and patient care.

The hospital has used a variety of strategies to bring Partners In Leadership Lead Culture™ training to its Ministry. However, the busy nature of a hospital schedule means it is not feasible to regularly bring team members in for traditional workshops. OSF HealthCare St. Mary instead implemented PIL Tools, a flexible online Culture Change Certification Process, along with an online portal where employees can use interactive tools to give focused feedback and learn about the culture initiatives.

"We are transforming to a culture that is preparing us for the future of health care,” said President Roxanna Crosser. “Our Culture change prepares us for improved agility, service consistency, clinical care, cost management and clarity of decision making.”

Partners In Leadership is proud to award the 2017 Silver Ozzie to OSF HealthCare St. Mary Medical Center for overcoming the challenges to improving their culture and patient experience.
