CHW Presented With Excellence in Business Award
San Francisco, CA - November 14, 2011 - Catholic Healthcare West has been named the 2011 recipient of the Excellence in Business ("Ebbie") Award presented by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber noted CHW's commitment to providing "high-quality, affordable healthcare services," as well as the organization's legacy of community service and charitable care. " The Chamber salutes Catholic Healthcare West for its innovative and compassionate business model that is driving one of San Francisco's most significant industries forward and helping to provide vital health care services to thousands of residents every year," said Steve Falk, the Chamber's president and chief executive officer.
The Ebbie is awarded to a San Francisco-based company, or company with a major presence in the city, which exemplifies excellent corporate citizenship in giving back to the communities in which it operates and in a corporate culture that enhances the lives of its employees.
"We are deeply honored by this recognition," said Lloyd Dean, president and chief executive officer of CHW. "While San Francisco is our headquarters city, it is our hospitals that exemplify the promise of our mission of providing affordable quality care for everyone. Saint Francis Memorial Hospital and St. Mary's Medical Center have provided health care services for all San Franciscan's for more than 150 years. We look forward to continuing that legacy."
