Southwoods Earns National Excellence Awards

BOARDMAN, Ohio – The Surgical Hospital at Southwoods has earned the 2019 Pinnacle of Excellence Award and the 2019 Guardian of Excellence Award from Press Ganey Associates.

The Pinnacle of Excellence Award recognizes top-performing clients from health-care organizations nationwide on the basis of extraordinary achievement and maintaining high levels of excellence for at least three consecutive years. 

“These awards reflect our staff’s commitment to improving the safety, quality and experience of patient care,” said Ed Muransky, Southwoods’ CEO. “They work diligently every day to perfect the patient experience and I’m proud of their hard work and dedication.” 

The Guardian of Excellence Award is a nationally-recognized symbol of achievement in health care. The award honors organizations who sustained performance in the top 5% for each reporting period during the course of one year. Southwoods has received this award every year since its inception in 2013.

Southwoods is one of three hospitals in Ohio to receive the Pinnacle of Excellence, one of 13 to receive the Guardian of Excellence and one of only two to receive both awards.
