Summit Pacific Medical Center (SPMC) has been recognized by Amerinet, a leading national healthcare solutions organization, as an Amerinet Healthcare Achievement Award winner in the category of Quality and Patient Care Delivery for their Sepsis Project. Through this annual awards program, Amerinet recognizes its members for their outstanding and innovative contributions to their patients, community and business partners in reducing healthcare costs, improving healthcare quality and serving the community.

The results of this project indicated that more patients are able to be cared for on a medical unit instead of being admitted to an ICU because of the early detection in the emergency department. This decreased the overall cost of healthcare for the patient and in the state of Washington the 13 hospitals that worked on this project were able to in total decrease the mortality rate by more than 35 percent.
