June 5, 2017 GMT

BLACKFOOT – The Erie Chapman Foundation, based in Nashville, Tennessee, announced that Bingham Memorial Hospital (BMH) has achieved the organization’s prestigious Healing Hospital Certification?. Erie Chapman, President and CEO of the Foundation, made the announcement. The recognition of BMH as a Healing Hospital acknowledges the exceptional quality of the hospital and their commitment to continuing to develop and sustain a culture of Radical Loving Care. The Erie Chapman Foundation has also recognized The Mayo Clinic, The Cleveland Clinic, Riverside Methodist Hospital (OhioHealth), and the Baylor Scott & White health systems as examples of peak performing organizations where Radical Loving Care is part of the culture.

“It was extremely important to me that Bingham Memorial become certified as a Healing Hospital,” said Jeff Daniels, CEO at BMH. “We already had a solid foundation, committed to excellence, and our employees were already providing high quality and compassionate care in a loving manner. I wanted to take everything we were already doing really well and signal our commitment to a new and higher standard of exceptional care that everyone deserves.” BMH started the certification review process in December, 2016.

“The Healing Hospital Certification means that our board recognizes that BMH has met the standards required of a culture that practices Radical Loving Care,” Mr. Chapman said. “Every hospital claims to be healing and caring. But, Radical Loving Care asks a harder question: ‘Is every single caregiver someone you would trust taking care of your mother?’ We call this The Mother Test™ and it is an extremely difficult standard to reach.”
