SRMC selected as 2011 Business of the Year

Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center was awarded the 2011 Business of the Year award by the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce at the annual gala on Friday, January 28, 2011.

In the eight months since the hospital opened, Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center has grown and developed in many arenas.

The new hospital:

• has employed nearly 500 individuals in the region, with the majority being hired in the first six months of 2010. This is a significant statement during a time of economic despondency.

• will pay approximately $1.5 million in taxes annually, thereby broadening the area’s tax base and contributing to growth the community.

• obtained National Institute for Care of Hospitalized Elderly (NICHE) certification, which specifically focuses on taking care of the elderly in an acute care setting.

• acquired Joint Commission status within one week of opening the facility. This endorsement represents the final requirement needed by many insurance companies before a hospital is considered to be a certified provider.

• has been approved to proceed with a cancer treatment center which will include radiation therapy.

• has consistently been ranked #1 in the Capital Division and in the top 10% of all 166 HCA hospitals for patient satisfaction.

• provided nearly $1.2 million in charity care to uninsured and underinsured patients in 2010.

• has been a Chamber of Commerce Trailblazer since 2009 and a Chamber member since early 2006.

• has amassed over 18,000 volunteer hours in just over 8 months with nearly 200 volunteers.

• added PET-CT services in the fall 2010 to their robust variety of health care services. • supported Breast Cancer Awareness month in October by hosting “Mammos and Massages,” which attracted 175 women to the facility for their annual mammogram. The hospital now has a Nurse Navigator, who assists women with various levels of breast cancer.

• has been instrumental in supporting the new MultiSpecialty Health Group, located in the Pogonia Medical Arts building at SRMC and houses physicians in these categories: two internal medicine, family practice and endocrinology. In addition, several specialists from Henrico Doctors Hospital in Richmond have moved into the building, filling the need for specialties in gynecologic oncology, thoracic, hepatobiliary, high risk cancer genetics counseling, and kidney transplant.

• hosted two blood drives since July and collected a total of 52 units of blood, potentially saving 75 or more lives in the process.

• hosted six spectacular social events and gave tours to nearly 6,000 people prior to the opening of the hospital.

In addition to these significant events, the construction of Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center during 2007-2010, created hundreds of jobs during a difficult economic time and also helped to improve the attractiveness of this region to businesses and citizens through improved accessibility to health care services. Additionally, significant infrastructure improvements, including a bridge and new roads to improve traffic flow across I-95 were made possible through the teamwork of Spotsylvania County, HCA and the Silver Companies. SRMC played a supportive role in the local community long before admitting patients by donating $100,000 to Germanna Community College for its nursing program, several thousand to each of the fire and rescue squads from the City of Fredericksburg, and Caroline, Spotsylvania, and Stafford counties, and awarding $2,000 to the Rappahannock United Way in honor of Doctor’s Day.
