Pelham Medical Center Recognized for Top Patient Care
Studer Group recognizes with Excellence in Patient Care award
Pelham Medical Center (PMC), part of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, was recognized with an Excellence in Patient Care award by the outcomes firm Studer Group®, a Huron Healthcare solution.
Excellence in Patient Care awards are given to select organizations that are coached by Studer Group based on their performance in various categories. PMC was selected based on a significant rate of change and substantial achievement with low employee turnover in recent years. Low employee turnover results in better patient outcomes, safety and satisfaction.
“Keeping the community healthy is a priority at Pelham Medical Center and our employees are our asset. We strive for the best working environment possible, so our patients receive the quality of care they deserve, which is most important. Receiving an award for outstanding patient care is an honor,” said PMC president Tony Kouskolekas. “It further confirms that our staff provides excellent care to our patients.”
PMC will receive the award at the Studer Group’s 13th annual What’s Right in Health Care® conference, August 4-6, 2015, in Chicago, Ills. What’s Right in Health Care® is a conference based on current health care events. The conference includes 35 sessions hosted by health care organizations.
