ROSWELL, Ga. — North Fulton Hospital has been named to the Georgia Hospital Association's (GHA) Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) Safety Leaders Circle, which recognizes hospitals' improvements in patient care for the second quarter of 2013. North Fulton Hospital is one of 31 hospitals in Georgia to place in the Elite Circle, the highest on the list.
North Fulton Hospital is a participant in the GHA HEN, an initiative begun last year that is part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service's (CMS) Partnership for Patients. GHA, through its Partnership for Health and Accountability (PHA), is one of 26 organizations nationally to be awarded federal funding to coordinate the implementation of a series of projects with hospitals.
"We are proud to recognize the hard work of North Fulton Hospital's staff and applaud their efforts and commitment to ensuring the reduction of infections and readmissions," said Earl Rogers, president of GHA.
