The Bellevue Hospital’s (TBH) Dietary Department has been awarded The 2013 Gold Plate Award for food safety practices. The award is administered through the Huron County General Health District.
            The Gold Plate Award is an acknowledgement given to food services that have excellent food safety practices. This award is given annually and is based on the facility’s performance from the previous year. It is a voluntary program.
            “The staff is very, very happy. This is a big deal for them,” noted TBH Dietary Leader Joe Hoff. “The staff receives extensive food service and safety training, and most of my staff has been trained in food safety through the Huron County Health Department as part of their certification process.”
            Continued Hoff, “I am extremely proud of my staff for all of their hard work and effort. It takes a lot of work each day to ensure food safety when you work in our field. This award is an excellent opportunity to show the community how important food safety is to us.”
            The Gold Plate Awards are reserved for facilities that meet the following criteria:
  • Have a valid FSO or RFE license
  • Send in an application
  • Receive a score of 90 or higher
  • Have not had any warning letters are administrative hearings in the past two years
  • Have not been responsible for a foodborne outbreak in the last two years.
            Each facility starts with a score of 100 and points are then deducted for critical and non-critical violations as reported by the Huron County General Health District.
            “We are very proud of the accomplishments of our Dietary Department. Being a hospital, our first concern is making sure we present the best quality food since we serve over 600 meals each day to patients, employees, and community members,” said Patty Semer, TBH Vice President of Administrative Services. “This award is also a testament that the food is prepared in a clean and healthy environment.”

The 5th annual event will kick-off in September.

            “We wish to congratulate Gerry and the other four winners,” said Michael K. Winthrop, President and CEO of The Bellevue Hospital (TBH). “We kicked-off this raffle in September of 2013 and our goal was to sell all 1,553 tickets at $100 each, a goal that we accomplished on December 13!
            Continued Winthrop, “For us, that made the raffle highly successful. It was important for us to sell and run this raffle in the right way and it was a great effort from our Foundation, Accounting Department, Marketing Department, and numerous volunteers.”
            Tickets were sold to people in 46 different U.S. states (only Vermont, Idaho, South Dakota and Alaska were not on the list), noted Kate Herring, TBH Foundation Director. “I would like to personally thank Gary Steinle of Steinle Chevrolet-Buick in Clyde. They were the co-sponsor of this event. Also, thanks to the Bellevue Beverage Center, the Fremont Steinle location, Hogue’s IGA in Bellevue, the hospital Gift Shop staff, and the Foundation Board members for all the support. We could not have accomplished this massive project without all their help.”
            Herring noted that all proceeds will benefit Foundation women’s and children’s projects, including the Women’s Mammography Fund, which will help supply screening mammograms for underinsured or uninsured women.
            Earlier in the day, the final Early Bird drawing of $250 was held, with Patrick McBride of Bowling Green, OH, the lucky winner.

TBH HONORED WITH WOMEN’S CHOICE AWARD
            The Bellevue Hospital (TBH) has received the 2014 Women’s Choice Award® ranking among America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Obstetrics. The distinction is the only award that identifies the country’s best healthcare institutions based on robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction, clinical excellence, and what women say they want from a hospital, including quality physician communications, responsiveness of nurses and support staff, cleanliness and trusted referrals from other women. 
Awarded hospitals must provide comprehensive obstetric services and meet criteria for patient satisfaction and surgical excellence based on female needs and preferences.
The Women’s Choice Award is the first national award based on the recommendations and preferences of women.  Hospitals qualify for this highly selective annual list of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Obstetrics based on a proprietary scoring process that incorporates a national, standardized survey of patients’ perspectives of hospital care reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as an analysis that weighs criteria identified as the most important to women for patient satisfaction.            
            “We provide women seeking peace of mind for their obstetric care with a trusted third party endorsement based on hospital experiences reported by women in their community.  As one of the America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Experience in Obstetrics, The Bellevue Hospital meets the toughest standards of excellence set by women,” states Delia Passi, CEO and founder of Women Certified, and former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines. “New moms have many choices when it comes to obstetrics.  Now they can make informed decisions based on the recommendations of other moms who have experienced that hospital first hand.  Most importantly, when a woman sees the Women’s Choice Award at her local hospital, she’ll know the hospital values her experience as a critical component of care for her and her loved ones.”

            Tiffany’s due date was officially set at Jan. 4, but Miranda had other ideas and made her entrance about a day after her mom started having contractions. She was 7 pounds, 12 ounces and measured 21 1Ž2 inches in length.
