NORCROSS, Ga., Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, the PruittHealth family of providers celebrates a history that spans nearly half a century as they honor caregivers, team members, past leaders, and patients through Founder's Day celebrations. Each of the 170 locations celebrates on the same day company-wide. It is a time for reflection and a special opportunity for the provider to thank its employed partners, volunteers, and customers for their contribution to the delivery of high-quality health care services each and every day.
Today, the organization spans across the Southeast, touches 170 communities, cares for 24,000 patients daily, and is driven by 16,000 passionate partners who are tasked with providing quality services and demonstrating a strong commitment to caring for their patients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Founder's Day is a chance to honor and recognize these unsung heroes who may be often times overlooked.
This year, the PruittHealth Norcross Corporate Campus celebrated Founder's Day with various food trucks, music, and CNAs and patients from various local PruittHealth skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers. The CNAs and patients received gifts and recognition for their dedication, and for being a special part of the PruittHealth family.
Founder's Day also inspires the PruittHealth family of providers to reflect on its humble beginnings – what was once a single nursing home in Toccoa, Georgia, has grown into an organization that is privileged to care for 24,000 patients through its advanced model of care. The mission of PruittHealth remains the same: Our family, your family, ONE FAMILY; committed to loving, giving, and caring; united in making a difference.
