Greg’s Weekly Update (June 1, 2018)


Hello Coliseum Northside Team!


Congratulations to our May Employee of the Month recipient, Robin Smith!  Robin is recognized for her willingness to help in any and all circumstances and for her friendly demeanor and the way that she lives out our values every day.

Congratulations, Robin!


HG_Patient_Safety_Award_Image_2018Very exciting news – congratulations to the entire team for Coliseum Northside Hospital being named as a recipient of the 2018 Patient Safety Excellence Award by Healthgrades. The Patient Safety Excellence Award recognizes hospitals that have the lowest occurrences of 14 preventable patient safety events. This means that our hospital is in the top 10% in the nation for patient safety.  Congratulations!


I also want to thank everyone who is involved with the care of our Orthopedic Total Hip and Total Knee patients – Coliseum Northside received our re-accreditation from Joint Commission for these important Disease Specific Accreditations.

The Movie on the Lawn has been rescheduled due to weather and will now be on June 22nd This is another great opportunity to show off our beautiful campus to the community and have a great time together.  The hospital week theme of “It’s a Jungle Out There!” will be capped off with this showing of Jumanji.  Come and enjoy a fun evening!


We completed our Employee Engagement Survey a week ago and had an 87 % completion rate.  Thank you to everyone for your participation and congratulations to the winners of the drawings.  I will share the results with you sometime in July.  Stay tuned!


Many thanks to all of the members of the Employee Advisory Group for planning and organizing the events during hospital week.  I think everyone had a great time!


I hope everyone is having a great start to your summer, and thank you for everything you do for our patients every day.  “Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life…”
