2011 Top Leadership Teams in Healthcare Winners Announced
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 19, 2011
HealthLeaders Media, the leading provider of healthcare business information to healthcare executives, has announced the Top Leadership Teams in Healthcare award winners for 2011.
The Top Leadership Teams in Healthcare award program is in its eighth year. The program is designed to celebrate the outstanding teamwork that occurs in healthcare organizations each day, to share what makes top leadership teams successful, and to encourage other healthcare leaders to learn more from the best practices of top leadership teams. This year, HealthLeaders Media recognized outstanding leadership teamwork at three hospitals and one medical group practice.
“The Top Leadership Teams program was founded on the premise that the core value for every successful healthcare organization must be teamwork—this year’s winners certainly demonstrate that concept,” says Gienna Shaw, a senior editor at HealthLeaders Media, who oversaw this year’s program.
The 2011 winners are
Banner Health, Phoenix, AZ, for Large Hospitals and Health Systems
Kadlec Regional Medical Center, Richland, WA, for Community and Mid-Sized Hospitals
Johnson County Community Hospital, Mountain City, TN, for Small Hospitals
ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP, Tarrytown, NY, for Medical Group Practices
“Everyone involved in selecting this year’s winners was so impressed with the hard work that these leadership teams did to make significant changes at their organizations. Each one has a compelling and unique story—but their experiences also hold lessons for all healthcare organizations that want to improve their patients’ experience, the quality and patient safety of their clinical care, and their business operations,” Shaw said.
Winners are judged on the team’s overall leadership culture, its ability to overcome challenges, and its ability to demonstrate successes that result from outstanding leadership teamwork. Only one winner per category receives this national honor each year. This year, the categories included:
Large Hospitals and Health Systems (500 or more licensed beds)
Community and Mid-Sized Hospitals (100–499 licensed beds)
Small Hospitals (fewer than 100 licensed beds)
Medical Group Practices (physician-owned, single- or multi-specialty groups employing 25 or more physicians)
The winning organizations will be profiled in the October issue of HealthLeaders magazine. For more information about the winners, go to: http://www.healthleadersmedia.com/content_redirect.cfm?content_id=269808
