OVGH President and CEO Thanks Staff for a Successful Joint Commission Review!
OVGH had a great visit from the Joint Commission this week. Our President and CEO, David W. Scott wanted to pass along a message of thanks to our hospital employees:
“I want to express my personal appreciation to all of you. The surveyors were quite complimentary of all staff members, and I was proud of everyone’s professionalism and positive attitude.
Of particular note, the surveyors stated that our level of integration of quality and patient safety into daily operations is seen in only the highest-performing organizations. They were also impressed with our overall quality of care, the maintenance and cleanliness of the Hospital, and they greatly enjoyed their meals and interactions with the Nutrition Services staff members. I also want to acknowledge our Facilities Director Joe Gillette — the surveyors requested permission to use Joe’s forms and documents for their “Best Practices” library for Facility Management programs and will be using his material for their safety training seminars.
Our excellent outcome was the result of much effort by everyone. This speaks very highly of our organization, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks again, and have a great weekend!”
