Since 2005, the Bernard A. Birnbaum, MD, Quality Leadership Award is given to UHC members that demonstrate superior performance in quality and safety. Award criteria include: timeliness, safety, equity, effectiveness, efficiency and patient centeredness, to structure the analysis criteria.
Emory University Hospital and Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital are both recipients of the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) prestigious Magnet designation. Emory Healthcare is the only health system in Georgia to have two hospitals designated as Magnet facilities.
This outstanding achievement for Emory University Hospital and Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital is a culmination of the relentless pursuit of excellence on the part of our nurses, physicians and staff.
2016 “Most Wired” Advanced
Emory Healthcare was listed on the Hospitals & Health Networks “Most Wired” list based on the 2016 survey that recognized more than 350 hospitals and health systems for successful health IT planning and implementation. Emory Healthcare was ranked among the top 19 hospitals and health systems as “Advanced” in all areas of this year’s survey. This year’s “Most Wired” hospitals were likely to prioritize combating cybercrime, conducting predictive analytics and providing telehealth services.
With our continuing expanded footprint, communities all over Atlanta and throughout Georgia have access to even more Emory physicians and their care teams. Big or small, major or minor, if you have a reason to seek medical care you there is an Emory Healthcare facility and an Emory Healthcare Network physician close to home.
We honor, celebrate and thank all of our physicians, nurses, leadership teams and staff for providing outstanding care to our patients and families, and for truly making patient- and family-centered care their priority each and every day while striving to stay on the forefront of the rapidly changing health care industry.
