Rapid City, S.D.-based Monument Health received the 2022 "Safety Excellence Award" from nonprofit patient safety organization ECRI.

Monument Health was able to increase its near-miss reporting by 334 percent thanks to its improved culture of safety and reporting system, according to the ECRI Nov. 7 press release. 

"We applaud Monument Health for advancing patient safety through increased reporting and other process improvements," Dheerendra Kommala, MD, chief medical officer at ECRI, said in the release.
