14 hospitals recognized for antimicrobial stewardship

Fourteen hospitals and health systems have been designated by the Infectious Diseases Society of America as top antimicrobial stewardship centers.

As antimicrobial resistance becomes a growing issue, programs led by infectious disease experts across the U.S. are increasingly vital, the Nov. 17 news release underscores. 

"As we enter U.S. Antibiotic Awareness week, we're reminded that drug-resistant infections continue to increase,"  Steven Schmitt, MD, IDSA President stated. "As IDSA continues to advocate for passage of the PASTEUR Act and the establishment of a grant program to strengthen antimicrobial stewardship programs in hospitals, the Centers of Excellence program recognizes hospitals that are joining us in that fight." 

Since 2017, the IDSA's program has awarded 177 programs for their antimicrobial stewardship efforts. 

The 14 recipients of 2023 are: 

  • Atrium Health Cabarrus — Concord, N.C.
  • Inova Fairfax Medical Campus — Falls Church, Va.
  • Mary Greeley Medical Center — Ames, Iowa
  • Mayo Clinic Mankato — Mankato, Minn.
