CalvertHealth Named to Modern Healthcare’s 2024 Innovators List


CalvertHealth is proud to announce that it was recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the Innovators for 2024. The profiles of the honorees are featured in the April 8, 2024 issue of Modern Healthcare magazine and online at ModernHealthcare.com/Innovator-Awards.

Modern Healthcare’s Innovators Awards & recognition program recognizes leaders and organizations driving innovation that improves care, achieves measurable results and contributes to the clinical and financial goals of the organization.

“The role of innovation has always been paramount in healthcare and our 2024 honorees as top Innovators are driving real change in the industry,” said Mary Ellen Podmolik, editor in chief of Modern Healthcare. “The wide variety of projects underway by these executives and organizations demonstrates a dedication to tackling the ‘what ifs’ that can improve the delivery of healthcare and improve communities and the patient experience.”

Amidst reports that Maryland had the longest Emergency Department (ED) wait times in the nation, CalvertHealth piloted a new process aimed at reducing wait times, expediting patient flow and freeing up beds needed for higher acuity patients. Early results demonstrated an 89% reduction in the number of patients who left without being seen and a 68% reduction in the amount of time patients waited to see a provider.

“We reimagined the way we provided care to our patients. Your next visit to the Emergency Department will not look the same as a visit last year, or even just a few months ago,” said emergency medicine physician and medical director for CalvertHealth’s Emergency Services Stephanie Dabulis, MD. Emergency departments have been forced to think outside of the box to provide the best emergency care to everyone safely, responsibly and efficiently. “Our goal was to treat a growing number of patients in the same space, while providing safe, high-quality patient care. It was a tall order, but we knew we had to do something, and our team was up for the challenge.”
