The Infectious Diseases Society of America recently named the Wexner Medical Center one of 23 centers deserving of the recognition. Antimicrobial resistance is one of the greatest threats facing healthcare on a global, national and individual level. The core criteria for the Center of Excellence program place emphasis on an institution's ability to implement stewardship protocols to optimize the treatment of infections and reduce adverse events associated with antibiotic use by leveraging electronic health record systems and providing ongoing education to help clinicians improve the quality of patient care while promoting patient safety. Congratulations to IDI Member and GOHi member, Kurt Stevenson, MD, head of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program at the Wexner Medical Center, and all contributing parties on this important designation.
