Some of the many awards and designations we have been honored to earn and receive include:
Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
AtlantiCare accepted this prestigious award, as announced in 2009 by President Obama and the U.S. Department of Commerce. We were one of only five healthcare organizations to receive it. The award affirms the outstanding progress we have made in our more than two-decade-long quest for organizational excellence. It is a tribute to our revolutionary vision of healthcare; our leadership team; our staff, physicians, volunteers and board members; and, most important, our community. Part of the responsibility that comes with the award is to share our performance excellence strategies with other organizations, and we do so proudly in an effort to help improve quality of care, nationwide. To that end, AtlantiCare remains committed to continuously improving our standards of healthcare delivery, safety, patient outcomes, and patient and employee satisfaction.
AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC) was granted Magnet Recognition® by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), in 2004 and 2008 for our ability to satisfy demanding criteria measuring our nursing team’s performance and strength over an extended period of time. ARMC submitted our Magnet Recognition Program® application for redesignation renewal in October 2012.
Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence.
Our Center for Surgical Weight Loss & Wellness was named a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery based on our track records of favorable outcomes.
