Annie Penn Hospital: People, place, performance.
The synergistic effect of people and place make this 110-bed hospital a welcoming environment in every way. For employees, it’s haven of excellence where staff are supported and inspired. The result: a ranking in the top 1% of hospitals nationwide for employee satisfaction, and Press Ganey’s Guardian of Excellence Award for three consecutive years. Not surprisingly, the highly motivated and qualified staff delivers leading care that has earned national recognition for quality and patient safety with a Top Hospital designation by the Leapfrog Group. Annie Penn means great care that’s also comprehensive, from cardiac to cancer care, from surgery to a sleep center, from thoracic medicine to urology and nephrology. Anchored in the community, with roots in Reidsville stretching nearly 90 years, and backed by the ample financial resources of Cone Health System, Annie Penn offers the right combination of people and place for today’s healthcare needs.
Morehead Memorial Hospital: Homing in to quality.
Mothers giving birth, able to enjoy the experience in a beautiful, safe and technologically superior birthing center; wound patients recovering faster and with less pain, treated at the area’s only Wound Care center offering healing hyperbaric oxygen therapy; injured workers easing back to function with less downtime—with employers suffering significantly fewer headaches—through superb occupational health services. It’s all part of healthcare with the accent on community at Morehead Memorial, a 108-bed nonprofit hospital in Eden, delivering health and wellness services and care across the county through more than 15 service areas and clinics. Recent improvements include the Wright Diagnostic Center, which elevates comfort while reducing waiting times for diagnostic and outpatient services; and Morehead’s $35 million main campus addition that includes the new Emergency Department with 16 state-of-the-art treatment rooms, and nearly 20,000 square feet of diagnostic and treatment space. Morehead connects personally and technologically with the latest in Electronic Medical Records.
