Stephens Co. Hospital Employees Entered in Statewide Logo Contest

Three Stephens County Hospital employees will have Patient Safety Week logos submitted to the statewide competition.

Angela Jackson, Meg Thomason, and Cheri Clary were the hospital winners of the Patient Safety Week Logo Contest at Stephens County Hospital, sponsored by the Georgia Hospital Association.

The Quality And Patient Safety branch of the Georgia Hospital Association is sponsoring the statewide contest to design a new logo for the Partnership for Health & Accountability Program. This program recognizes patient safety in health care organizations and brings together the health care field with agencies and individuals to ensure quality and safety in healthy communities.

This year’s winning logo design will be revealed at the Georgia Hospital Association’s Partnership for Health & Accountability annual Patient Safety Summit in January 2013.

The logo will help promote National Patient Safety Awareness Week, which is scheduled for March 3-9, 2013.

Patient Safety Awareness Week is an annual campaign that strives to educate health care organizations and promote awareness in the community.
