From the Georgia Hospital Association: “Patient Safety and Quality Award Winner Spotlight: Congratulations to AdventHealth Redmond on winning second place in the Hospitals With 100-299 Beds category for its project ‘Post COVID Rehabilitation: Improving Quality of Life Through a Dynamic Therapy Program’ that improved the quality of life for patients post-COVID. GHA applauds AdventHealth Redmond for their efforts in helping patients rehabilitate from the coronavirus.”

 

The Georgia Hospital Association has presented its 2022 Patient Safety and Quality winners and AdventHealth Redmond has taken second-place honors among hospitals with 100 to 299 beds.

More impressive is the reason behind the award. The hospital, purchased by AdventHealth last year, was cited for its project “Post COVID Rehabilitation: Improving Quality of Life Through a Dynamic Therapy Program” that improved the quality of life for patients post-COVID. Redmond also was listed among the GHA’s Circle of Excellence.

Redmond, as well as Atrium Health Floyd, have been the community’s care centers since the pandemic began 25 months ago. During the Delta variant peak, Redmond had nearly 100 patients under care; at Omicron’s peak, the total was 84 people.

As of Monday, Redmond had two COVID patients. Only once in the past two years, on June 20, 2020, did the hospital report no active COVID patients.

In 2021, Redmond also was honored with first place for “Huddle Up! A Safety Huddle to Improve Outcomes and Communication.” It also was included in the year’s Circle of Excellence. In 2020, Redmond took third place for  “The Patient and Provider Partnership: Screening, Diagnosing and Saving Lives through a CommunityBased Hospital Lung Screening Program.” Also: Circle of Excellence.

The PHA Patient Safety and Quality Awards recognize health care organizations for their achievements in reducing the risk of medical errors and improving patient safety and medical outcomes.
