Category Archives: Uncategorized Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals Gives “Eagle” Award to Governor Brian Kemp 2:08 pm

The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals gave its first-ever Eagle Award to Governor Brian Kemp for his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Introducing Governor Kemp, WellStar Health System Executive Vice President and General Counsel Leo Reichert said, “When Governor Kemp was elected, I’m sure he didn’t think he’d be spending as much time on healthcare related issues as he has. We’ve all been through 18 months far different than anything we’ve ever seen, and as part of the Georgia hospital community, I want to thank Governor Kemp for the partnership we’ve had over the last 18 months, working together to help Georgians and our communities get through the pandemic. He set the tone from the very top, doing regular calls with our hospital leadership group and leadership at individual hospitals. At the end of every call, he’d say, ‘here’s my cell phone, call me if you need something’ and it’s actually his cell phone number and he answers it. We look forward to building on that partnership so that Georgia’s community hospitals can thrive so that we can better serve our communities and our patients.”

 

Georgia Alliance President and CEO Monty Veazey said, “we appreciate you, Governor Kemp, and thank you for the personal attention you’ve given to ensuring that Georgia’s not-for-profit community hospitals had the resources – from nursing and other skilled positions, to PPE and supplies, and assistance from the men and women of the Georgia National Guard – to faithfully serve our patients. During this period, you have been unfailingly accessible to us when we needed help serving our patients, and we truly appreciate your help with so many important issues,” said Monty Veazey, President and CEO of the Alliance.

 

“We at the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals want to present you this Eagle statue. I know your faith is important to you and a source of strength for you and your family. I’m reminded of Isaiah 40:31, where it is written, ‘But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.’ I cannot imagine the weariness you must have felt during this pandemic, but I know where you went to renew your strength, and I know that you helped us and the staff at our hospitals keep going when we too felt weary,” said Mr. Veazey.

 

Incoming Alliance Board Chair Joe Ierardi, CEO of Wayne Memorial Hospital in Jesup, Georgia, said, “As the leader of a hospital serving patients in rural South Georgia, the ability to speak personally to Governor Kemp when we faced problems and the assistance we received from him, his staff, and the state agencies under his Administration was instrumental in helping our community and our patients make it through the pandemic.

 

The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, based in Tifton, Georgia represents not-for-profit hospitals ranging in size from the largest multi-campus, statewide hospital systems, to the smallest independent rural hospitals, and seeks to ensure the availability of high quality patient care for all Georgians, regardless of their ability to pay.

 

Loy Howard passed gavel to Joe Ierardi as Chairman of Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals 1:13 pm

Loy Howard, CEO of Tanner Health System and outgoing Chairman of the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals passed the gavel to incoming Chairman Joe Ierardi, CEO of Wayne Memorial Hospital at the 38th GACH Annual Conference last week.

 

“The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals has been blessed with the steady leadership of Loy Howard during the past year of the pandemic, and I have full confidence that Joe Ierardi will continue to lead us forward as we combat the COVID-19 pandemic and work to strengthen Georgia’s network of not-for-profit community hospitals,” said Monty Veazey, President and CEO of the Alliance.

 

“The pandemic and the role our hospitals played in serving our patients and communities highlights the importance of protecting Georgia’s network of non-profit hospitals. I am proud to have served as Chairman while our member hospitals and their staffs went to heroic lengths to put Georgia Patients First and deliver the high-quality health care Georgians deserve,” said Mr. Howard.

 

“We will continue the fight against COVID-19 and to ensure that Georgia’s hospitals are equipped to go the extra mile in providing care to all our patients. I’m thankful to Loy Howard and the Alliance Board of Directors and staff for their efforts that have gotten us this far. More than anything, I hope we all share a greater understanding of the important work that all of our staff do every day, to keep our patients healthy. I am honored to lead the Alliance as we advocate for better healthcare for all our patients,” said Mr. Ierardi.

 

Loy Howard serves as CEO of Tanner Health System, which includes Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton, Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica, Higgins General Hospital in Bremen, the Willowbrooke at Tanner behavioral health facility in Villa Rica, management and daily operations of Wedowee Hospital in Wedowee, Alabama and operations of Tanner Medical Group with 35 locations.

 

Joe Ierardi serves as CEO of Wayne Memorial Hospital in Jesup, Georgia, where he has served since 2007 and previously served as Vice Chairman of the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals.

 

The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, based in Tifton, Georgia represents not-for-profit hospitals ranging in size from the largest multi-campus, statewide hospital systems, to the smallest independent rural hospitals, and seeks to ensure the availability of high quality patient care for all Georgians, regardless of their ability to pay.

Northside Hospital Gwinnett doubles size of its Emergency Department, receives approval to build 10-story patient tower 7:26 pm

Building on its commitment to strengthen health care resources in the Gwinnett region, Northside Hospital Gwinnett has completed a major expansion of its emergency department, begun work on a new patient tower, and is deepening its already significant community partnerships.

 

On Oct. 18, Northside Hospital Gwinnett cut the ribbon on its newly expanded emergency department in Lawrenceville. The hospital’s emergency department consistently ranks among the highest volume facilities in Georgia, with more than 100,000 visits annually. It also recently received the critical approval from the Georgia Department of Community Health to build 10-story, 162-inpatient bed tower, which will be located on the Northside Gwinnett campus.

 

Debbie Mitcham, president and CEO of Northside Hospital in Gwinnett and Duluth, said that the pace of growth in the region demands a similar pace for health care access.

 

“Northside believes that access to care is of the utmost importance and realized that a county with close to a million residents needed a bigger emergency department footprint,” said Ms. Mitcham. “With the completion of this project, emergency room capacity will double, thus increasing the ability to not only take care of more Gwinnett County residents, but take care of them more efficiently.”

 

Ms. Mitcham said that plans for the patient tower and bed additions also include a five-story, 143,828-square-foot medical office building to house outpatient imaging, ambulatory surgery and a variety of physician practices. The project site preparation has begun – completion is expected in 2023.

 

The expanded emergency department has a completely redesigned trauma area to address access and patient flow challenges, as well as a two-story addition with more exam rooms and observation beds. Work already is underway on the second phase, which is a renovation of the original emergency facilities.

 

Northside’s commitment to the community extends beyond brick and mortar.

 

The health system is broadening its community partnership programs with many of region’s non-profit organizations and events. On Oct. 23, Northside will serve as the presenting sponsor of Paint Gwinnett Pink, the largest breast cancer 5K in Gwinnett County. This year’s virtual event has already raised nearly $900,000 toward the purchase of new 3D mammography for the Breast Care Centers at Northside Gwinnett and Northside Duluth.

 

The Northside Hospital system is one of Georgia’s leading health care providers, with five acute-care hospitals in Lawrenceville, Duluth, Atlanta, Canton and Cumming, and more than 250 outpatient locations across the state. Throughout Gwinnett, patients have access to Northside providers and specialty services, including cancer care, cardiovascular care, maternity and women’s services, sports medicine and orthopedics, weight management, rehabilitation, pediatric and adult imaging, primary care, urgent care, and other specialty care services.

Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals names 2020 and 2021 Legislators of the Year 2:57 pm

The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals named its 2020 and 2021 Legislators of the Year in their first Annual Conference since 2019. The 2020 Annual Conference was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

“It is exciting to gather again with the leadership of our Georgia community not-for-proft hospitals and thank them for the daily acts of heroism performed by their staff members to save the lives of Georgians,” said Monty Veazey, President and CEO of the Alliance.

 

“Likewise, I am proud to recognize State Representative Lee Hawkins as the Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals Legislator of the Year for 2020. Dr. Hawkins represents the ideals of servant leadership and of working to ensure that every Georgian has access to high quality, affordable health care services every day of the year,” said Veazey.

 

“For the 2021 Legislator of the Year, Senate President Pro Tem Butch Miller has stood at the forefront of his chamber, elected by his peers and his constituents in Hall County, and worked to ensure the strength of Georgia’s community hospitals network, and most recently, to combat the rising number of assaults against health care workers,” said Veazey.

 

“We hope this year has highlighted the importance of the services our member hospitals and their staff members provide for residents of Georgia. Without the careful stewardship of our not-for-profit community hospitals, the pandemic could have done far more damage to Georgia’s families and their livelihoods,” said Veazey.

 

The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals, based in Tifton, Georgia represents not-for-profit hospitals ranging in size from the largest multi-campus, statewide hospital systems, to the smallest independent rural hospitals, and seeks to ensure the availability of high quality patient care for all Georgians, regardless of their ability to pay.

Hamilton Medical Center providing the highest level of safety, comfort, convenience for healthcare providers 3:05 pm

Hamilton Medical Center has begun using the MAXAIR® controlled air purifying respirator (CAPR) system to provide unprecedented protection and comfort for healthcare workers who have extended exposure to patients with COVID or other highly transmissible diseases.

MAXAIR CAPR® Systems are advanced powered air purifying respirator systems approved by the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Hazard (NIOSH) for protection against aerosolized and airborne particulates.

The MAXAIR CAPR Systems provide overall safety, comfort, convenience and cost effectiveness versus mask respirators and conventional powered air-purifying respirators (PAPRs). In addition, it provides an extra level of patient friendliness and better communication because patients can see the entire face of the healthcare provider.

“One of the best benefits of the MaxAir CAPR systems is that it provides greater freedom of movement while protecting the wearer from viral and bacterial pathogens,” said Perri Correll, director of Infection Prevention. “The simple design of the CAPR protects the wearer and makes it less intimidating to users and patients.”

The wearer’s ears are outside of the helmet so that the healthcare provider can use a stethoscope and a telephone.

The protection offered by the CAPR system is a step up from that of face masks. It provides a higher level of protection than N95 respirators in healthcare settings where providers may need to be with a patient for extended periods of time. N95 respirators, personal protective equipment for protecting the wearer’s face from contaminating particles or liquid, can also be uncomfortable.

“The MAXAIR CAPR keeps the wearer cool, comfortable and safe,” said Correll.

The CAPRs can be modified to be used in other pandemic emergencies like Ebola.

Join Atrium Health Navicent in Observing National SIDS Awareness Month 5:05 pm

Health system seeks to educate the community about SIDS and how to reduce SIDS risk

 

Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital invites the community to observe National SIDS Awareness Month during October by learning about how SIDS risk can be reduced.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden, unexplained death of a child less than 1 year old that remains unexplained after a complete investigation. These deaths often occur during sleep, or in the baby’s sleep area. SIDS is one type of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID), which also includes suffocation, entrapment, trauma, and cardiac arrhythmias.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 3,400 babies in the United States die each year from SUID. Of these, more than 1 in 3 are attributable to SIDS.

In Georgia, for every 100,000 births, 127.2 infants die from sudden unexpected events including SIDS. That figure is well above the US average of 90.1.

According to the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, SIDS is the leading cause of death among babies between 1 month and 1 year of age.

Although the cause of SIDS is unknown, there are ways to reduce your infant’s risk. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, all of the following decrease the risk of SIDS:

SIDS cases have declined in the last 30 years, following the release of The American Academy of Pediatrics safe sleep recommendations in 1992. Despite that decrease, “the risk of death from SIDS in the first year of life is still 20 times higher than the risk of death during any of the next 17 years,” said Dr. Christy Peterson, a pediatrician at Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital. “All of the following decrease the risk of SIDS: non-prone sleeping, safe sleep practices, routine vaccines, prenatal care for the mother, and the absence of a smoking history in the mother.” 

Premature infants also face an increased risk of SUID, but parents and guardians can take steps to reduce risk.

“Studies have shown that following the same principles of back to sleep, breastfeeding, avoidance of tobacco and other recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics play a role in protecting preterm infants as well,” said Dr. Mitch Rodriguez, a neonatologist and medical director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and business development officer for Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital.

Atrium Health Named to 2021 Joy in Medicine™ Health System Recognition Program 2:56 pm

The American Medical Association (AMA) today announced Atrium Health is one of 44 health systems named to the 2021 Joy in Medicine™ Recognition Program. This distinction recognizes the Atrium Health enterprise – including the greater Charlotte area, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Atrium Health Navicent in Macon, Georgia and Floyd health system in Rome, Georgia – for its demonstrated commitment to preserving the well-being of health care team members by engaging in proven efforts to combat work-related stress and burnout.

“This recognition is a testament to Atrium Health’s dedication to its clinicians’ well-being, especially during the pandemic,” said Dr. Scott Rissmiller, executive vice president and chief physician executive for Atrium Health. “By encouraging multidisciplinary teamwork, promoting innovation and fostering emotional resilience, our physicians and advanced practice providers can continue to provide outstanding care for our patients every day. We are honored to be named among the best in the nation for our commitment to our colleagues’ professional and mental health.”

A national study examining the self-reported experiences of physicians and other providers who worked in health care systems during the COVID-19 pandemic found that 38% experienced anxiety or depression, 43% suffered from work overload and 49% had burnout.

“Since early last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has placed extraordinary stress on health care professionals,” said Dr. Kevin High, president of Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist. “Health systems have experienced unprecedented challenges. It is more important than ever to focus on the well-being of care teams and to combat higher rates of work overload, anxiety and depression. Atrium Health is proud to lead in promoting an organizational culture that empowers and supports our clinicians.”

Candidates for the Joy in Medicine Health System Recognition Program were evaluated according to their documented efforts to reduce work-related burnout through system-level drivers. Scoring criteria was based on demonstrated competencies in commitment, assessment, leadership, efficiency of practice environment, teamwork and support.

Atrium Health formed its “Best Place to Care” initiative to empower physicians to maximize their passion, potential and performance as they live out the organization’s mission to improve health, elevate hope and advance healing for all. The group’s focus on well-being has resulted in numerous initiatives, including:

• Executing a workforce manager system in ambulatory practices to ensure clinicians have adequate staffing support;

• Providing a well-being helpline, available 24/7, to facilitate peer-to-peer, EAP, mental health and chaplain services;

• Establishing PeerNet, a system staffed by faculty members to help clinicians dealing with adverse clinical events as well as processes to reduce administrative burdens.

“This award validates what we’ve seen by implementing ‘Best Place to Care’,” said Dr. Patrice Walker, chief medical officer at Atrium Health Navicent. “Atrium Health is a leader in understanding the needs of clinicians and working to create the best environment possible.”

Launched in 2019, the Joy in Medicine Health System Recognition Program is a component of the AMA’s practice transformation efforts, an ambitious initiative to advance evidence-based solutions that fill the knowledge gap in effective solutions to the physician burnout crisis.

Hamilton Emergency Medical Services earns advanced recertification 12:57 pm

Hamilton Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) has received reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services for its compliance with national standards of excellence. HEMS initially was certified in 2018.

 

HEMS is one of more than 180 ambulance services in the nation to successfully complete the voluntary review process, which includes completion of a comprehensive application and on-site review by national experts in emergency medical services (EMS). HEMS is one of only nine in Georgia to hold this certification.

 

The Commission is a non-profit organization which was established to encourage and promote quality patient care in America’s medical transportation system. The primary focus of the Commission’s standards is high-quality patient care. This is accomplished by establishing national standards which not only address the delivery of patient care, but also the ambulance service’s total operation and its relationships with other agencies, the general public and the medical community. The Commission’s standards often exceed state or local licensing requirements.

 

Our staff has been key to our successful completion of the process,” said Scott Radeker, HEMS director.

“Everyone here played a valuable role in our ability to meet the Commission’s high standards.”

 

CAAS accreditation is designed to help EMS agencies increase organizational performance and efficiency, increase clinical quality, and decrease risk and liability.  Accreditation provides a template for making comprehensive organization changes that improve the overall performance of the organization.  An independent review validates that accredited agencies are adhering to the highest standards in the industry.

 

HEMS is part of Hamilton Health Care System and the sole emergency medical transport service in Whitfield County. HEMS is designated by the state of Georgia as an Advanced Life Support service and responds to more than 15,000 9-1-1 calls and approximately 2,500 non-emergency transport calls per year.

My Health, My Way, MyChart 6:49 pm

Tanner’s patient app makes managing healthcare easy

 

For Carrollton resident Beverly Parkman, an app from Tanner Health System is an answer to the anxiety she’s often felt awaiting a test result.

 

With more than 50,000 Tanner patients now using the app to schedule medical appointments, get test results, message their medical providers and pay their bills, Tanner’s MyChart has seen continued growth in the two years since the health system launched it.

 

And for patients like Parkman, it’s also offered peace of mind.

 

“Most of my doctors are on MyChart, so I can usually see my results in the app before they call or send a letter,” she said. “I like that. I don’t have to be waiting anxiously. I can get on with my day.”

 

Routine healthcare tasks — such as viewing test results, scheduling doctor’s appointments, requesting prescription refills, messaging healthcare teams and more — can be handled in just a few clicks. That’s made the app a godsend for patients engaged in their care like Parkman, as well as for patients juggling busy, multigenerational families.

 

Parkman also refers often to her calendar of upcoming appointments on MyChart, as well as the list of other things she may still need to schedule such as a flu shot or a mammogram. She also has the option of viewing test results as soon as they’re available and securely messaging her medical providers with questions.

 

“When I had pre-op tests for a surgery this summer, I was amazed that the results appeared on My Chart within about an hour and a half! They came through that quick!”

 

“If I am not sure what the results mean, the doctor is always available to provide more perspective or answer my questions,” Parkman said.

 

Parkman and her husband, David — both long-time volunteers at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton — have been using the app since its introduction at Tanner two years ago. Help with sign-up was offered as a perk for volunteers, and they went for it.

 

For the Parkmans, the app has made managing their care easier with features available around the clock.

 

Admittedly, she uses MyChart more than her husband does.

 

“He just doesn’t go to the doctor as often as I do. But when he does, he checks his MyChart,” she said.

 

David Parkman likes the app’s intuitive security features, such as the login with facial recognition instead of a password.

 

The Tanner MyChart app was launched in July 2019 as part of a new, single electronic health record across the health system to improve patient care and operation efficiencies.

 

The app provides patient insight to their care at Tanner’s own five hospitals and almost 40 practice locations across Carroll, Haralson and Heard counties, plus a growing list of independent practices that have signed on to participate in a special program called Community Connect. This creates a more complete patient record and makes MyChart available to more patients, while enabling these non-Tanner practices to maintain their independence.

 

Additional MyChart features include the ability to message your health care team through the app with questions, photos and other information; the ability to pay bills online and more.

 

A special proxy feature is also available to help manage health care conveniently and confidentially for young children or aging adults in the family who may need assistance.

 

“I highly recommend MyChart. It’s just so much quicker,” Parkman said. “I can still make a phone call if I need to, and that’s fine. It is nice to talk to people in the office. Life is short, and we have things to do!”

 

Learn more about Tanner MyChart — including how to sign-up for your own account – and watch a video about the patient app at Tanner.MyChart.org.

Atrium Health Navicent Offers Pfizer COVID-19 Booster Shots 1:00 pm

Vaccines are available for eligible individuals who completed the Pfizer vaccine series

 

Atrium Health Navicent is now offering Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots to eligible individuals.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended booster shots for certain groups of people who completed the Pfizer vaccine series at least six months ago, including individuals aged 65 and older, residents in long-term care facilities and individuals aged 50 to 64 who have an underlying medical condition.

Others eligible to receive a shot include individuals aged 18 to 49 with an underlying medical condition and those between ages 18 and 64 who are at high risk of exposure and transmission in a work or institutional setting. 

COVID-19 booster shots are available by appointment at Atrium Health Navicent Primary Care West Macon, 3780 Eisenhower Parkway in Macon.

Physicians at Atrium Health Navicent continue to urge everyone aged 12 and older to become vaccinated. First and second vaccine doses are available at Atrium Health Navicent Primary Care West Macon and Atrium Health Navicent Children’s Care Downtown Macon, 744 First Street in Macon.

To schedule an appointment for COVID-19 booster shots, first doses or second doses, visit COVIDSafeGa.org. Vaccine availability is allocated and managed by the state. A parent or guardian must accompany minors to all vaccine appointments.

“There is still a great need for those who have not received a shot to become vaccinated. Data has consistently shown that nearly all those who have developed severe COVID infections and required ventilator care in our intensive care units are unvaccinated,” said Atrium Health Navicent President and CEO Delvecchio Finley. “Vaccination remains our proven best method to reduce the spread of this deadly pandemic. Protect yourself and your loved ones. Get vaccinated today.”

Third doses of the Pfizer vaccine are also recommended for some immunocompromised individuals. Individuals with health questions about being vaccinated are asked to consult with their primary care physician.

There is currently no recommendation for boosters for individuals who received Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Vaccinated individuals and those waiting to be vaccinated are encouraged to continue to practice COVID-safe behaviors including wearing a mask in public, social distancing and frequent handwashing.
