GGH Ranked Top Georgia Hospital
Wednesday, December 26, 2012
Grady General Hospital (GGH) was recently named a Top Georgia Hospital among small hospitals in the state by Georgia Trend Magazine.
In the December issue, the magazine listed GGH among the top 72 hospitals in Georgia for excelling in areas such as quality of care and patient satisfaction. Additional publically available information on hospital readmissions, mortality and hospital acquired infections obtained from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) was used to compile the rankings.
All four Archbold hospitals achieved high rankings in their respective patient bed categories with GGH placing 11th in the category for hospitals with fewer than 150 beds.
“Providing our patient’s the best quality, patient-focused care is our number one priority,” said LaDon Toole, GGH administrator. “Our staff is dedicated to ensuring that patients receive the right care at the right time in a safe environment.”
The Georgia Trend ranking marks the conclusion of another exceptional year for GGH.
The hospital earned multiple awards from the Georgia Hospital Association for their sustained focus on overall quality of care and patient safety initiatives, which also helped GGH consistently place on GHA’s “Quality Honor Roll.” Also this year, GGH earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with national standards for healthcare quality and safety in hospitals.
“The accreditations and recognitions we’ve received over the past year for excellence in patient care are a testament to our staff’s commitment to provide our community high-quality healthcare,” said Toole. “It’s an honor for GGH to be recognized as a Top Georgia Hospital, and it’s something for our community to be very proud of.”
