GMC Honors Staff for Hospital Week Celebration

05.11.2009

Lawrenceville & Duluth, Ga.—Each year, during the second week of May, Gwinnett Medical Center takes time to acknowledge the diversity of talents within our hospitals and facilities. Gwinnett Medical Center’s Hospital Week recognizes the efforts of our local dedicated hospital employees.

During Hospital Week, we also recognize GMC’s ongoing transformation of healthcare in Gwinnett, evident through the construction of a new patient tower, a public campaign to bring open heart surgery to our community, a new imaging center in the Hamilton Mill area, new sleep centers in Lawrenceville and Duluth, new advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures and a new diabetes education center in Duluth. All of these advancements would not be possible if it wasn’t for the dedication of the more than 4,300 associates of Gwinnett Medical Center.  

In addition to our dedicated associates, GMC’s doctors, volunteers and the hundreds of other supporting organizations make GMC so successful. This entire spectrum of care ensures that Gwinnett’s 750,000+ residents can receive the quality of care they deserve.

“National Hospital Week is a time to celebrate our progress and look to the future,” said Philip R. Wolfe, president and CEO of Gwinnett Medical Center. “Excellence in healthcare is a team effort—no one does it alone. Gwinnett Medical Center’s associates are committed to the quality of care that makes Project PATH possible.”

Gwinnett Medical Center’s quality has yielded national recognition from several prestigious organizations, which includes, among many others, the 2006, 2008 and 2009 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence from HealthGrades, 2008 HP Software Awards of Excellence, 2007–2009 American Association of Critical-Care Nurses Beacon Award Recipient, as well as a place among America’s safest hospitals according to Forbes magazine.  

The quality of care provided at GMC is due to the dedication and commitment of a deserving staff who work diligently every day to make GMC the hospital that Gwinnett deserves.
