Lawrenceville, Ga.—National Hospital Week is celebrated every year to recognize the efforts of dedicated hospital employees across the world. At Gwinnett Medical Center, we take this time to acknowledge the diversity of talents within our hospitals and facilities.
During hospital week, we also recognize GMC’s ongoing commitment to the community and clinical excellence. Through Project PATH, GMC is planning, advancing and transforming healthcare to meet the needs of our growing population. This commitment is evident through the construction of a new patient tower, a public open heart surgery campaign, a new Imaging center coming to the Hamilton Mill area and more. All of this would not be possible if it wasn’t for the dedication of the more than 4,300 employees. From doctors to volunteers to the hundreds of other supporting roles, this entire spectrum of care ensures that the more than 750,000 residents of Gwinnett can receive the quality of care they deserve.
"National Hospital Week is a time to celebrate our progress and look to the future together," said Philip R. Wolfe, president and CEO of Gwinnett Medical Center. "Excellence in healthcare is a team effort—no one does it alone. The staff at Gwinnett Medical Center is committed to the quality of care that makes Project PATH possible."
Gwinnett Medical Center’s quality has yielded recognition for many sources, including the 2006 and 2008 Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence from HealthGrades, 2008 HP Software Awards of Excellence, 2007 and 2008 American Association of Critical-Care Nurses Beacon Award Recipient, and many more.
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.
