Woodwinds Health Campus honored

Eighteen Minnesota hospital representatives and programs were honored May 8 at the 25th-annual Minnesota Hospital Association (MHA) Awards banquet.

In the "Small Hospital Category," Woodwinds Health Campus, Woodbury, was recognized for itsholistic model of care. Its "healing environment" is designed as much for the staff as it is for the patients.

The hospital's nurse vacancy rate is less than 1 percent. In many departments, waiting lists exist for the most sought-after positions; turnover is far below the national average, at just 1.56 percent; and the organization's patient satisfaction score is in the 92nd percentile.

Woodwinds has shared details about its approach with other professionals during nearly 200 site visits.
