GEORGIA HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION NAMES EHS TO PRESTIGIOUS ELITE CIRCLE FOR PATIENT SAFETY

The Georgia Hospital Association’s Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) has named Effingham Health System to the prestigious Elite Circle for its accomplishments in the patient safety arena in 2012.   The Elite Circle is the highest category in the HEN’s recognition program and places EHS in the 90th percentile or above.  Only 12 other Georgia hospitals in the GHA HEN finished in the Elite Circle. 

The GNA HEN, which kicked off at the beginning of 2012, aims to reduce hospital acquired conditions statewide by 40 percent and hospital readmissions by 20 percent by the end of 2013.  This Elite Circle designation reflects Effingham Health System’s commitment to serving the needs of Effingham County at the highest level possible.  We offer congratulations to every member of the Effingham Health System staff, all of whom are dedicated to these life-saving goals every day.
