Lakewood Health System named 'Innovator of the Year'

On Friday, May 14, Lakewood Health System was awarded the 2010 Innovation of the Year in Patient Care award for its Medical Home program at the annual Minnesota Hospital Association Award Program in Minneapolis.

The honor was one of 18 individual and group awards bestowed by the Minnesota Hospital Association. The organization's annual program recognizes caregivers, administrators and others whose contributions kept the bar high at Minnesota hospitals last year.

Lakewood Health System's efforts in developing the Medical Home and providing a high standard of care exemplify the kind of first-rate attention to quality that Minnesota hospitals are known for, said MHA President and CEO Lawrence Massa.
