Local involvement, national recognition

Programs to prevent cancer, combat diabetes and help new mothers are just some of the community initiatives that have White Memorial Medical Center national recognition. White Memorial has been named one of three national finalists for the 2016 Foster G. McGaw Prize for Excellence in Community Service. “Keeping the community healthy has been White Memorial Medical Center’s mission since its beginning,” said John O’Brien, chair of the Foster G. McGaw Prize Committee.  According to the announcement, White Memorial was selected for “its exemplary commitment to provide culturally competent, comprehensive care for the community” and will receive $10,000 to support its community health initiatives.

The Foster G. McGaw Prize is sponsored by the Baxter International Foundation, the American Hospital Association (AHA) and its not-for-profit affiliate Health Research & Educational Trust. First awarded in 1986, the prize recognizes the achievements of hospitals that significantly improve the health and well-being of their communities. White Memorial President and Chief Executive Officer John Raffoul said being named a finalist is “an honor,” adding that at the hospital “community service has for over 100 years been integral with healthcare. “This distinction is a testament to our commitment to keeping our communities healthy with consistent year-over-year superior clinical performance.”

At GAMC, clean hands are healing hands!

GAMC Clean hands

What’s the best way to prevent the spread of pathogenic and antibiotic resistant bacteria in a healthcare setting? Clean hands of course! In fact, hand hygiene greatly reduces the incidence rate of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). This has been well known for decades, yet the overall implementation of hand hygiene across the nation is a dismal 40 percent. At Glendale Adventist Medical Center, we recently renewed our commitment to improve our hand hygiene rates and prevent infection. We invite you to join our new initiative – “Clean Hands are Healing Hands”! After all, preventing healthcare associated infections is in our hands—our clean hands. As health care professionals, we have the power of healing and we do not want to compromise this sacred mission.

We’re proud to recognize Mercy Alex, RN, outpatient surgery for her outstanding contributions to the lives of our patients and their families. A patient’s family member wrote us: “Mercy was my father’s nurse in the recovery room. She provided exceptional care and was very careful super attentive. I hope all RNs provide similar care to your patients. I will most definitely recommend Glendale Adventist Medical Center to my family and friends because of Mercy and the outstanding care that she gave my father.” Congratulations Mercy, and thank you for the outstanding care that you provide our patients!
