As 2011 draws to a close, HomeTown Health, LLC recognizes excellence among its member hospitals as well as the business partners who serve these rural Georgia hospitals.

HomeTown Health, LLC recognized Wills Memorial Hospital as the “Hospital of the Year” at its 2011 Annual Conference at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia from among 55 statewide Georgia rural hospital members. Wills Memorial Hospital received this prestigious award for demonstrating exceptional leadership by providing quality doctors, dedicated caregivers, and adopting “Best Practices” that contributed to the overall success of the hospital. The criteria consists of having an ongoing strategic plan, involvement with legislators in governmental affairs, being highly regarded by business providers and hospital peers, a strong commitment to staff education, and expressing decision making capabilities that promotes the highest quality health care with the greatest access to the citizens of Wilkes County and surrounding counties, while maintaining a financially viable health care institution.

“Wills Memorial Hospital has achieved notable success in a very difficult and volatile healthcare environment and is recognized and commended for achievement far above the normal rural hospital system”, stated Jimmy Lewis, the CEO of HomeTown Health.

Quadax, which provides EDI/Clearinghouse and Revenue Cycle Management services healthcare providers of every size and specialty, has been selected as HomeTown Health, LLC’s “Business Partner of the Year” for 2011.

“As CEO of a rural hospital network, I see firsthand, day after day, how tough things are for both hospitals and their patients. Some would say we’ve hit a perfect storm, with cash-strapped facilities, budget shortfalls, uncertain health reform, potential cuts in reimbursement rates, rising numbers of uninsured patients, and this list goes on,” said Jimmy Lewis, CEO of HomeTown Health. “Quadax has worked diligently to help our hospitals see some bright spots in this difficult economy. With Quadax’s solutions, hospitals, physician practices and clinics see improved bottom lines, while at the same time ensure all patient accounts are treated consistently and appropriately.”
