Martha Jefferson Hospital Takes Top Honor
Atlanta, GA (July 2, 2012) – Soliant Health, a leading specialty healthcare staffing provider and part of Adecco Group, is proud to announce that Martha Jefferson Hospital of Charlottesville, Virginia was named America’s Most Beautiful Hospital for 2012.
The contest, which is in its fourth year, turned this year’s choice over to America and after almost 170,000 votes, Martha Jefferson Hospital took the top spot. Completed last year, a pitched roof and extensive gardens to promote a feeling of home, designer slate elevator bays, decorative frosted glass windows to allow light in as much as possible while maintaining privacy, and hand-crafted tile designed specifically for each patient bathroom, are just some of the thousands of big (and little) touches that make Martha Jefferson Hospital this year’s winner for Most Beautiful Hospital in America.
“From the very beginning of the design process, our aim has been to provide our patients, visitors and staff with a comfortable, pleasant environment. We believe that such an environment improves their overall experience and patient outcomes,” said Jim Haden, President of Martha Jefferson Hospital, a member of Sentara Healthcare. “Ultimately, we wanted the facility itself to reflect our vision to set the standard for clinical quality and personalized healthcare services.”
“More than a thousand different studies show that when a patient feels more comfortable and less stressed, the healing process is faster,” said David Alexander, president of Soliant Health. "Martha Jefferson Hospital combines state-of-the-art equipment, advanced technologies, and a nurturing, friendly environment to merge the science of medicine with the art of healing."
While Martha Jefferson Hospital came away as the 2012 winner, there was stiff competition from a number of other amazing hospitals. The top twenty list was rounded out by:
