During the American Hospital Association’s Annual Meeting in early May, the Foster G. McGaw Prize for Excellence in Community Service was presented to Spectrum Health, Grand Rapids.
Spectrum Health provides community outreach through its Healthier Communities department by formulating innovative programs to address specific health challenges, then collaborating with other organizations to address them.
Spectrum Health Healthier Communities conducts a number of initiatives, including the Strong Beginnings Program that is designed to improve maternal-child health and eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in birth outcomes; Community Partnerships for Wellness and Access to Healthy Food, which is tailored for children and minority populations; the School Health Advocacy Program that partners with seven local school districts; and the Core Health Program, a chronic disease management program for underserved individuals.
One of the three finalists chosen for the award is ProMedica, Toledo, OH, the parent organization of MHA-member hospitals ProMedica Bixby Hospital, Adrian, and ProMedica Herrick Hospital, Tecumseh.
The award is sponsored by the Baxter International Foundation and the American Hospital Association and is administered by the Health Research & Educational Trust.
