The Care Beyond Compare Award program recognizes the hospital’s efforts to achieve measured metrics, including:

  • CAUTI – lowest rate

“Every associate can impact their hospital’s performance by understanding how they can make LifeCare better each and every day,” said Frank Battafarano, LifeCare’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Our associates do this by owning it, creating it, personalizing it, blurring it and respecting it. You can also ask yourself, ‘How can I make LifeCare better each and every day?’”
