Ashe Memorial Hospital receives safety award
- Ashe Memorial Hospital was recently recognized with the Platinum Safety Award from The North Carolina NCHA Strategic Partners Workers' Compensation Fund.
The award, presented to Ashe Memorial Hospital chief executive officer Brian Yates by Scott Parrish, senior risk control consultant for Arthur J. Gallagher, is in recognition of the hospital's superior accident experience in 2021.
"Safety remains a top priority at Ashe Memorial Hospital," said Brian Yates, chief executive officer for Ashe Memorial Hospital. "We are pleased to once again be recognized with the Safety Award. This achievement wouldn't be possible without each of our team members who are committed to ensuring the safety of our patients, our community and one another on a daily basis."
Ashe Memorial Hospital had a loss ratio of less than 5 percent of its premium. This is the seventh-consecutive year that Ashe Memorial Hospital has received this award. Additionally, the award recognizes the hospital's implementation of all nine safety program requirements and 15 workers' compensation survey tools for best practices.
"Receiving this level of award definitely shows the vigilance and hard work that all of our team members put in on a daily basis to make Ashe Memorial Hospital a safe environment for ourselves, our patients and our visitors," said Rick Swain, chief of police and safety director for Ashe Memorial Hospital. Good job, everyone!"
