VVMC President James Bleicher, M.D., named recipient of American Hospital Association’s leadership award
Nov. 19, 2012 Verde Valley Medical Center’s President and Chief Executive Officer James J. Bleicher, M.D., M.S., recently was named the 2012 winner of the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Shirley Ann Munroe Leadership Award. The national award recognizes the accomplishments of chief executives and administrators from small hospitals who have achieved improvements in local health delivery and health status through their leadership and direction.
Dr. Bleicher was recognized by the AHA for his commitment to quality improvement. Since joining VVMC in 2009 as the hospital’s vice president of Operations and Medical Affairs, VVMC’s nationally reported Hospital Quality Alliance (HQA) measures have increased from 65 percent to 92 percent. Additionally, the hospital has significantly decreased infection rates, reporting zero central-line infections as well as zero ventilator-associated pneumonia during the last four years.
Dr. Bleicher also was selected for the award for his innovation in building communitywide collaborative relationships, improving and expanding coverage and access to essential healthcare services, implementing patient safety and quality initiatives, and identifying and utilizing new technologies and information systems to improve health outcomes. He has been a driving force in community-focused healthcare services for patients and families. Under his leadership, VVMC opened several primary and specialty clinics, renovated and expanded VVMC campuses, increased services offered and positively impacted the community’s perception of VVMC.
Under Dr. Bleicher’s guidance, VVMC was listed as one of the “100 Great Community Hospitals� in the U.S. by Becker’s Hospital Review, and the hospital earned several Get With The Guidelines® awards from the American Heart Association.
His influence and leadership have changed the culture at VVMC by implementing a whole-hospital concept that recognizes each employee as a vital member of the organization and healthcare team. In the past two years, employee engagement has increased from the 18th percentile to the 90th percentile as measured through an annual survey conducted by the Advisory Board. Because of his work, Dr. Bleicher was selected by Professional Research Consultants to speak this year at their national conference on the topic of building a positive hospital culture.
Dr. Bleicher was named VVMC president and CEO in 2010. Before becoming president, he was the vice president of Medical Affairs, serving as a liaison between hospital administration and the VVMC medical staff. In addition to his administrative roles, he has many years of clinical experience as a hospitalist and internist.
