EAST PROVIDENCE – Psychiatric care facility Bradley Hospital earned the “Top Performer on Key Quality Measures for 2011” distinction by The Joint Commission, a leading accreditor of health organizations in the United States.

Bradley, the country’s first psychiatric hospital focused on treating children and adolescents, was the only psychiatric care facility in New England to earn the designation.

Only 620 hospitals in the U.S. were recognized as top performers by the group.

“This is an important recognition for Bradley Hospital, demonstrating and reinforcing our commitment to consistently provide the best care for the children and families we serve,” Daniel J. Wall, Bradley’s president and CEO, said in a statement.

“As the nation’s first psychiatric hospital for children and adolescents, we have a unique responsibility to show that Bradley delivers exemplary care to patients and their families,” added Wall. “This distinction underscores that our hard work and focus on quality are paying off.”

According to a release announcing the distinction, Bradley was “singled out for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain medical conditions.”

The hospital was recognized for its work in the inpatient psychiatric services category.

Founded in 1931, Bradley is also a teaching hospital for Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School.
