Then & Now: Care & Healing
Sumner Regional CEO Susan Peach was awarded the 2020 Tennessee Hospital Association CEO of Distinction. She included as many people as she could into the photo because she said, “Everyone who works in health care deserves an award for making it through 2020.”
Sumner Regional Medical Center was once again voted “Best Hospital in Sumner County” by readers of local newspapers from Main Street Media Tennessee.
The WSMV Surprise Squad with Holly Thompson visited Sumner Regional to recognize and reward three SRMC nurses for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Access to high-quality health care HERE in Gallatin is essential to the continued success of our community. Sumner Regional Medical Center (SRMC) is the flagship hospital of HighPoint Health System, a four-hospital system covering much of northern Middle Tennessee. Since 1959, SRMC has been providing dependable access to emergency care, imaging and surgical services, and a growing list of specialty services and outpatient services.
In 2020, the way we provided these essential services while protecting our patients, staff, and community began to look a little different. Our hospital has implemented comprehensive plans to detect, protect, and respond to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.
We have transformed our lobby, ER, and many other areas to ensure safety if you or your family need care. We have created a safe and separate unit to treat COVID-19 patients. We also have strict screening procedures in place to reduce the transmission of the virus from the community to our hospital.
Advancing the health care services available to you has not stopped because of COVID-19. The Emergency Room at Sumner Station on Big Station Camp Boulevard achieved an Emergency Department Cardiac Care Certification by American College of Cardiology. This accreditation is based on rigorous onsite evaluation of the Sumner Station ER to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients who may be experiencing an urgent heart problem and need access to emergency care closer to home.
In 2020, Sumner Regional Medical Center also received the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence. Sumner Regional Medical Center earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period.
“We are dedicated to providing the highest quality stroke care for our community,” said Chief Nursing Officer Isabelle Garibaldi, RN, DNP. “The families of Sumner County and all of Middle Tennessee deserve the peace of mind that their hospital has the qualifications and experience to provide immediate care for a stroke emergency.”
These achievements are the foundation for future growth and services. Be on the lookout in 2021 as Sumner Regional announces new service lines and quality care initiatives here in Gallatin!
