Beebe Healthcare is certified by the Joint Commission as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center, and for its hip and knee replacement surgical programs. Consumer Reports, in its September 2013 issue, reported that Beebe was the safest place in Delaware to have surgery. A Consumer Reports survey rated 2,463 U.S. acute-care or critical-access hospitals according to how well Medicare patients 65 years of age and older fared following surgery between 2009 and 2011. The ratings considered how well hospitals avoided adverse events that led either to patients staying longer in the hospital for a procedure than expected, or to patients dying.
Beebe Healthcare has an extensive surgical program that includes cardiac, gynecologic, gastrointestinal and cancer specialties, as well as an comprehensive orthopaedic and spinal program. Last year, more than 13,000 surgeries were performed in its 12 operating rooms. Beebe is also a Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystems Elders-designated hospital, which means that a team of nurses has specialized training to care for elderly patients.
Sign-on bonuses for nurses are being offed for full- and part-time positions: $5,000 for ICU opportunities, and $3,000 for specific inpatient units. Detailed job descriptions are available on the website, www.beebehealthcare.org.
