Tuesday, September 15, 2015 - HFM Receives HealthTrust Social Stewardship - Community Outreach Award

Holy Family Memorial (HFM) was recently honored by HealthTrust with the 2015 Social Stewardship – Community Outreach award.

The HealthTrust Social Stewardship – Community Outreach award recognizes HealthTrust members who have demonstrated a commitment to conservation and preservation of the healthcare environment, have a proven track record of advancing diversity in their use of minority- and women-owned business enterprises, and /or have gone “above and beyond” in their community outreach efforts to improve access to care.

HFM received the award for its onsite primary care clinic collaboration with several long-term senior living communities in Manitowoc which is based on HFM’s Right Care, Right Setting and Right Outcomes philosophy. As a result, residents have convenient access to a physician without ever having to step outside of their senior living community.

“The onsite primary care clinics at these long-term facilities have resulted in much success,” said Marcia Donlon, HFM Administrative Director of Primary Care/Care Continuity. “Since 2011, HFM has seen a 63 percent drop in transports to the emergency department and overall readmission rate from nursing homes have decreased by 20 percent.”

HealthTrust established its annual awards program to acknowledge the outstanding performance and contributions of its members. Other HealthTrust award categories also include Outstanding Member, Operational Excellence, Clinical Excellence, and the Gita Wasan Patel Pharmacy Excellence Award.
