DocuComp® LLC client Joint Township District Memorial Hospital, St. Marys, Ohio (125 beds) has received the highly distinguished Premier CareScience Select Practice National Quality Award for 2007 and again in 2009. The award recognizes the Top 1% of hospitals demonstrating quality-of-care and exceptional efficiency based on submitted inpatient claims. The St. Marys, Ohio, hospital is one of only 49 hospitals nationwide honored with this exclusive award.
