Vice President of Quality and Patient Safety Cindy Kern said WVU Medicine Camden Clark is extremely proud to be recognized by Healthgrades as a leader in delivering high quality care to those who live in the Mid-Ohio Valley area. “It’s great to win national awards, but we are focused on those for whom we care everyday---our patients and their families. CCMC strives for excellence in the care and support of our community on a daily basis” she said. “We are honored to receive their top ratings showcasing our commitment to excellence in the areas of Heart and Lung disease and Women’s Care,” Kerns said. “It’s our mission to be a top performing hospital locally, regionally and nationally, so we are thrilled that we continue to be recognized for our improvement efforts.”
