OSS Health is proud to announce that we’ve won the Physician Hospitals of America’s (PHA) 2017 Physician Hospital of the Year Award. This award is truly special to our team as it is presented to us by our own peers. PHA is made up of about 180 physician-owned hospitals and to be recognized by their group for our efforts is an incredibly high honor.
This latest award recognizes our entire staff’s commitment to excellence day in and day out, specifically our exceptional record of high quality, community service, and leadership in supporting our organization’s legislative priorities and grassroots initiatives. While informing the staff of this achievement Dr. Alhadeff said, “It is truly a pleasure to work with the great group that we have here at OSS Health. All of us have contributed to our success.” We’d like to thank all our staff members for their magnificent moments every day.
Our peer group, PHA, found our efforts to combat the nation’s opioid crisis at a local level a testament to the devotion we have for our community. These same efforts also recently led to our team receiving the 2017 Excellence in Care Award from the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania.
OSS Health and Advocacy
Since 2008 OSS Health has been a member of PHA as we seek to advocate for physician-owned hospitals. In the past, our staff has visited Congress members and local government officials advocating for the industry. Last December Dr. Alhadeff and several other physician-owned hospital doctors paid several Senators a visit while campaigning. Dr. Song, who helped spearhead our own internal opioid audit, recently assisted the State Department of Health in drafting guidelines related to opiate prescriptions.
OSS Health will be accepting the award at the PHA Executive Summit in Asheville, NC later this fall. The PHA is committed to offering support, advocacy, and educational services to physician owned hospitals. It envisions a healthcare system focused primarily on quality patient care, in which physicians are involved in every aspect of the delivery. Our team at OSS Health has a very similar philosophy where every staff member makes up the patient experience which is why we’re proud PHA members and even prouder of this recognition.
