Perry Hospital Recognized by VHA Georgia for Emergency Department Improvements
October 1, 2014 – ApolloMD is proud to congratulate partner facility Perry Hospital in Perry, Georgia on a recent recognition by VHA. In September, VHA Georgia held its 2014 Leadership Expo in Atlanta. The expo served as an educational and networking event as well as a forum for members to share challenges and strategies from their facilities.
The event also featured VHA Georgia’s 2014 Leadership Awards Program. Winners were selected following a six-month application process and extensive peer review evaluation. Perry Hospital was awarded the prestigious 1st place accolade in the 0-49 bed facility category for “increasing patient satisfaction and throughput in the emergency department with immediate bedding.”
ApolloMD partnered with Houston Healthcare to provide emergency physician services at Perry Hospital and Houston Medical Center in early 2014. Since transitioning the contract, significant improvements have been achieved in both patient satisfaction and throughput.
“We are very proud of the achievements seen thus far at Perry Hospital and look forward to working with hospital administration and the medical staff to continue to optimize emergency care,” said Jessica Tribbett, MHA, Vice President of Operations.
