Date:7/9/2009

The American Hospital Association (AHA) has named Quorum Health Resources (QHR) management client Holy Cross Hospital in Taos, N.M., one of five winners of its 2009 NOVA Award.

Brentwood, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 9, 2009-- The American Hospital Association (AHA) has named Quorum Health Resources (QHR) management client Holy Cross Hospital in Taos, N.M., one of five winners of its 2009 NOVA Award. Established in 1993, the AHA NOVA Award recognizes hospitals and health systems for their collaborative efforts toward improving community health. Holy Cross Hospital was recognized for its First Steps program.

"We know that hospitals improve the health of a community by caring for the sick, but hospitals can also inspire and work with those around them, so that together they can extend their reach," said AHA President and CEO Rich Umbdenstock. "The AHA NOVA Award recognizes those hospitals that, through collaboration, provide for the community through education, outreach and so much more."

The result of a community collaboration that launched in 2001, Holy Cross Hospital's First Steps program provides new parents with information, support and access to resources in the community that promote early childhood development and a positive family foundation. The program provides weekly home visiting services from the prenatal period until the child's third birthday. Parents learn about nutrition, preventive health care and pre-school readiness, which helps promote physically and mentally healthy children in a safe and nurturing family relationship. During its first funded year beginning in July 2007, First Steps provided 1,878 visits that served a total of 93 families.

"We are proud to be recognized by the AHA for our efforts in helping families adapt to the arrival of a new member," said Holy Cross Hospital CEO Peter Hofstetter. "Our staff has worked extremely hard on the First Steps program and its success can be seen all over our community. What a wonderful effort to be a part of."

"Holy Cross is most deserving of this award. The hospital is always looking for new and creative ways to contribute to its community. This program, in particular, has made a real difference for the residents of Taos," said QHR President and CEO James L. Horrar. "I applaud the entire team at Holy Cross for their unwavering community spirit."

AHA's 2009 NOVA Award winners were selected from 58 applications, recommended by the AHA NOVA Award Committee and approved by the AHA Board of Trustees. Award winners will be honored at a July 25 ceremony held during the association's annual Health Forum Leadership Summit in San Francisco.

QHR (Quorum Health Resources) has provided consulting, management and education resources to hospitals and health systems for three decades.
