Charles Cole Memorial Hospital to Receive HAP Award

Charles Cole Memorial Hospital to Receive HAP Award

Charles Cole Memorial Hospital was awarded a 2010 Achievement Award by the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania.

Among 134 entries, 17 of the state’s most innovative hospital programs were selected, according to HAP. CCMH’s entry, “Community Benefit Advisory Committees: Advancing Community Partnerships,” was one of three chosen in the state in the community outreach and engagement category. The entry outlined the hospital’s creation and expansion of five CBACs within its four county service area. CBAC members represent each of their respective communities and offer feedback to enhance the hospital’s image and most recently aided in the development of the strategic plan and inaugural set of Promises and Commitments to the community.

“We are so grateful to our CBAC members for all they do,” said Patrice Levavasseur, executive director, patient and community relations. “Their valuable input and participation has helped form strong community relationships that are beyond measure. They are an integral element in our pursuit of excellence.”

“These programs are examples of the commitment hospitals and health systems make every day, in good times and bad, to their patients, communities, and employees,” said HAP President and CEO Carolyn F. Scanlan. “They are among the most innovative and creative in the health care field, and we salute their accomplishments.”

“HAP’s Achievement Awards program began in 1978 as a way to recognize the innovation of Pennsylvania’s health care organizations,” Scanlan said. “Although HAP member hospitals and health systems may look and operate very differently now than they did back then, one thing has not changed: their commitment to quality and continuous improvement as they deliver care in their communities.”

The 2010 Achievement Award entries were evaluated by a 19-judge panel representing the public and private sectors, health care and business organizations, the media, and for-profit and nonprofit entities. Details about the award winning programs are available online at

HAP is a statewide membership services organization that advocates for nearly 250 Pennsylvania acute and specialty care, primary care, subacute care, long-term care, home health, and hospice providers, as well as the patients and communities they serve.
