Accreditations and Achievements
Adena is an Award-Winning Health System in the Foothills of the Appalachian Mountains
The Adena Regional Medical Center, along with other healthcare facilities within the health system, has received a number of awards, accreditations and accolades.
The Trailblazer Award is one that is presented to individuals, businesses or organizations that are recognized as pioneers – those that have blazed a trail to guide others with unique and innovative ideas or programs. The award recognized three hospital partners that are working closely with the Area Agency on Aging District 7 on the Community Care Transitions Project. This Care Transition partnership has been a journey for not only us as a community based organization but also for our partner hospitals. The ultimate goal is to reduce readmissions and we are showing we can successfully do that. But the real reason we do what we do is because we care deeply about those individuals entrusted to our care. The Area Agency on Aging along with our three area hospital partners are blazing the trail to the future of healthcare. We are the pioneers leading the way for many.
