Saint Joseph’s Hospital of Atlanta proudly announces it has once again been named to the Georgia Hospital Association’s (GHA) Partnership for Health and Accountability (PHA) Chairman’s Honor Roll. The Chairman’s Honor Roll is the highest designation within the GHA’s three tier honor roll system which recognizes Georgia hospitals with the best clinical practices. This is Saint Joseph’s Atlanta’s second consecutive year receiving the top honor.

“Saint Joseph’s mission has always been to provide excellent medical care to the community, and as such we are proud to receive this great distinction which recognizes the health systems committed to quality and accountability,” said Howard Watts, CEO Saint Joseph’s Health System. “I must attribute this success to our devoted staff, as they are the ones who embody the quality and compassionate care that is Saint Joseph’s.”

“So few hospitals are able to attain Chairman’s Honor Roll status and for Saint Joseph’s to not only attain, but maintain its presence on this list year after year is an enviable accomplishment,” said Joseph Parker, president of GHA. “This recognition speaks to the high standards held by Saint Joseph’s staff and to the organization’s commitment to providing each patient with the best, most effective health care possible.”

The honor roll is based on clinical data provided by the federal Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services (CMS), which administers the nation’s Medicare and Medicaid programs. The data was collected from January 2010 to December 2010. All acute care hospitals are required to submit care data to CMS. This data details how well a hospital’s caregivers adhere to a list of eight Appropriate Care Measures (ACM), which are the clinical processes of care that are known to be the most effective methods of treatment for patients who have suffered heart attacks, heart failure or pneumonia. The ACM is a composite measure that determines whether a patient received the right care at the right time. A hospital’s adherence to these recommended clinical practices usually leads to better outcomes.

PHA includes representation from groups like hospitals, physicians, state health officials, legislators and businesses.
