We have received many letters of congratulations on McLeod receiving the 2010 American Hospital Association McKesson Quest for Quality Award. We have letters and emails from from patients, family, physicians, industry leaders, hospitals who have visited McLeod, hospitals and organizations who have worked with McLeod on a quality project. The letters have arrived from Massachusetts, Canada, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, Georgia, South Carolina and beyond. I wish I could share them all with you. Here is the text of a letter from Governor Mark Sanford. We appreciate his note of encouragement.
“Congratulations to McLeod Regional Medical Center for being awarded the 2010 American Hospital Association-McKesson Quest for Quality Prize. This is quite an achievement and has brought positive national recognition to South Carolina.
The medical center has proven its effectiveness in patient-centered care and its commitment to quality programs and services. On behalf of the Palmetto State, thank you to the administrators, staff and medical teams for their hard work. I wish each of you the best for continued success.
Again, take care.
We appreciate the Governor taking time to write a note of thanks and recognizing the hard work of many on the McLeod team. Please accept his thanks and this recognition of your work and service to others. May we find encouragement to continue improving our services for patients and families.
