It is an honor to be recognized with the Gwinnett Chamber’s Healthcare Professional Award. As the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care, VITAS Healthcare of Atlanta is committed to serving patients and their families in Gwinnett County and the surrounding areas with quality and compassionate care.
Gwinnett Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine was honored to be selected as the 2015 Healthcare Agency Winner. For more than 40 years, we have dedicated our efforts and time to bettering the health of our little patients. It reinforces our dedication to our profession to be recognized in this way by our peers.
Winning the Specialist of the Year Award has enabled our community members to be quickly educated on our unique and innovative model. It truly has increased our exposure in the community. Salude is the only inpatient post-acute transitional care facility in Georgia and it has helped our visibility immensely.
For our patients, the Healthcare Awards signifies commitment and innovation. For our GMC physician and employee community, it reaffirms that their work is highly valued and they are helping to establish benchmarks which leads to a higher rate of success.
Over the past few years, we have had the privilege to be a winner of the Best of Gwinnett, the Pinnacle Small Business Awards and one of the most prestigious honors in my industry, the Gwinnett Chamber’s Healthcare Dentist of the Year Award. The networking opportunities, recognition and visibility has had a direct impact on the success of our practice.
Receiving a Healthcare Award affirms the innovative, leading-edge nature of our nursing program. It also affirms the economic impact of Georgia Gwinnett College, and the nursing program specifically, on Gwinnett County, as 100 percent of our May 2016 nursing graduates are currently employed, and most of them by health facilities in Gwinnett County.
