The Community Behavioral Health Hospital in Baxter recently received top honors for workplace safety and health.
The hospital and four other Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) facilities were among 161 employers awarded Governor's Safety Awards by the Minnesota Safety Council last month.
The Baxter hospital, a 16-bed facility that provides short-term, inpatient psychiatric care to adults, received the Award of Honor, the highest conferred. DHS chemical dependency and substance abuse treatment facilities in Anoka, Carlton, Fergus Falls and Willmar received Meritorious Achievement Awards.
Governor's Safety Award applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with state and national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.
