BCHS recognized down under
Battle Creek Health System is now known worldwide. It was featured in an article in the spring edition of The Australian Hospital Engineer about the hospital's energy center and how it has reduced its carbon footprint on the environment. The American Society of Healthcare Engineers also recognized BCHS earlier this spring for its efforts in reducing energy consumption. BCHS is one of only ten hospitals in the United States to receive this honor and the only one in Michigan.
Battle Creek Health System, sponsored by two parent organizations--Trinity Health (the fourth largest Catholic health system in the U.S. with 21 hospitals, 9 nursing homes, 19 senior house facilities, 8 home health care agencies, and 4 hospices in Michigan alone) and BCHS Community Partners, is accredited by the Joint Commission. Battle Creek Health System, a member of the Mercy Cancer Network, is a recipient of the 2008 HealthGrades Orthopaedic Surgery Excellence Award(tm) and 2010 Five Star rated for joint replacement surgery and total knee replacement. HealthGrades is a leading health care information company that provides objective 'report card' ratings nationwide. BCHS provides excellent health care for the community and promotes wellness for the whole person with access and compassion for all.
