Steve’s Weekly Wrap-Up (Dec 9, 2016)


bright-futureThe month of November was another great month of patient care at Coliseum Northside Hospital! We finished with over 260 admissions, 3,000 ER visits and 260 surgeries. 2016 has been a great year thanks to the compassionate care you deliver to our patients. The future is bright for CNH, and I look forward to more great things in 2017.

Last night we held our last Medical Executive Committee meeting and Medical Staff meeting for 2016. I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Janine Ellis for the last 2 years as President of the Medical Staff. She has worked tirelessly with the physicians to make Northside a great place for patients to receive care and for physicians to practice. Beginning in January, Dr. Wood Pope begins as our new President of the Medical Staff and Dr. Sam Robinson will serve as President-elect. Please congratulate them as they take on these important roles.angel-tree

Thanks to everyone who is participating in the Angel Tree again this year. Because of your kindness, many children will have a few things to open and celebrate this holiday season. Your willingness to extend your compassion beyond your own families demonstrates the values of everyone here at CNH.

chs-holiday-party-inviteNext Tuesday, December 13th, we will be serving our annual holiday meal. We look forward to seeing everyone before we all get tied up in holiday parties, travel and other family traditions during Christmas and New Year’s. It is another opportunity for us to say thank you for the care your provide to our patients.

Attention Nurses: We’re offering a new HCA RN Experience survey to get your feedback more frequently, and use it to shape the RN Experience at Coliseum Northside Hospital. It’s a 10-question, online survey specifically for RNs. The survey ends December 16 so please provide us your feedback before the survey closes. Contact your Director or HR if you need help logging on to the survey.
