Southwest General Earns 2020 Emergency Nurses Association Lantern AwardTM
The hospital’s Main Campus and Brunswick Emergency Rooms recognized
with annual award for exceptional and innovative performance.
Middleburg Hts., OH (Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2020) – Southwest General’s Main Campus and Brunswick Emergency
Rooms (ER) have been selected as recipients of the Emergency Nurse Association’s
(ENA) 2020 Lantern AwardTM for demonstrating exceptional and innovative
performance in leadership, practice, education, advocacy and research.
The Lantern Award highlights an ER’s accomplishments in incorporating
evidence-based practice and innovation into emergency care. In the award
application process, organizations were encouraged to share stories that
highlight a commitment to the care of patients as well as to the well-being
of the nursing staff. The award serves as a visible symbol of a hospital’s
commitment to quality, safety and a healthy work environment.
“More so than ever before, patients are taking an active role in
their health care needs as well as where they receive their care,”
said William A. Young, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Southwest
General. “We are grateful to ENA for this distinguished honor and
for the commitment and the work being done by both of our Emergency Rooms.
We hope that patients, when making the choice of where to go for care,
will use this as a guiding light.”
This is the second time the hospital’s Main Campus ER has earned
this notable achievement and the first time for the hospital’s Brunswick ER.
