Awards recognize hospitals work to improve clinical quality and community benefit
University Health Care System was one of only five Georgia hospitals – and the only one outside the metro Atlanta area – to be recognized for its work to improve clinical quality and community benefit, honoring each of the hospitals with a 2007 VHA Leadership Award.
University won a VHA Leadership Award for its work to improve care for patients with congestive heart failure.
The hospitals were honored at VHA’s Leadership Conference in Denver on May 20.
