This award, formerly named the UHC Quality Leadership Award, recognizes top-performing academic medical centers. Emory University Hospital ranked in the top 10 among all UHC members in the 2015 Quality and Accountability Study. Emory University Hospital has received this award every year since 2011.

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.

Magnet® Designation

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.

    My name is Shawanda Williams
    and I am writing on behalf of WombPrep, a support group for women who battle
    with infertility. While doing some research, I noticed that your agency is a
    major business that assists women in this area. It would be great to partner
    with your agency to provide support and assistance to women and families that
    are struggling in this area. I will simply ask that you forward our contact
    info to anyone who you feel could benefit from this group.

    This Saturday, August 13th,
    at 5pm, our support group will be celebrating the launch of a new book, Overcoming
    Infertility: Faith While You Wait, written by our group founder, Geri Alicea.
    We will be celebrating with Geri and her family at T’s Coffee and Brews Café,
    in Jonesboro, and would like to invite your office staff to join us, as well as
    any clients you may have that seem interested. Book and T-shirts will be
    available for purchase.

    Also, if your office is
    interested, a few books may be available to place in your office for sale.
    However, this can be discussed at a future time. For now, we’re only interested
    in inviting your staff and clients to come out to the book launch this
    Saturday. I will follow-up with a phone call later this week, just to extend a
    more personal invite. The info is below.

    Saturday, August 13, 2016 @ 5pm
    T’s Coffee & Brews Café
    7163 Mt. Zion Blvd
    Jonesboro, GA 30236

    Be Blessed!
