University Makes PHA Honor Roll
AUGUSTA, GA. (Feb. 19, 2009) – University Hospital was named to Georgia’s Partnership for Health and Accountability (PHA) Presidential Honor Roll in February for meeting care standards in the treatment of heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia.
The Presidential Honor Roll is for hospitals that score between 93-97 percent in providing 10 measures of appropriate care.
The PHA was established in January 2000 to improve patient care and patient safety in hospitals and other healthcare facilities and create healthy communities. PHA was developed by building on already existing partnerships that were extended to include all stakeholders in healthcare. PHA is governed by a multi-disciplinary advisory council that reports to the GHA Research and Education Foundation Board via the PHA Executive Committee.
