Guthrie Cortland Medical Center has successfully met Excellus BlueCross BlueShield’s 2018 quality goals aimed toward improving clinical outcomes, patient safety and patient satisfaction. As a result, GCMC has been awarded over $50,000 in recognition of its commitment to delivering quality outcomes. Thank you to everyone involved in this success.
There is now a form for employees to utilize when taking uniform items to an approved vendor to have the Guthrie Logo applied. This approval form must be signed by the employee’s supervisor prior to taking items to the vendor. As the uniform initiative expands, this form will give us a tool to track and trend.
The form is available on the Guthrie intranet here. We will have a “soft start” using the form for the next six weeks and it will become mandatory beginning April 1, 2019.
