Minden, Louisiana, March 2016. – LifePoint Health, a leading healthcare company dedicated to Making Communities Healthier®, awarded Minden Medical Center with a 2015 High Five Award for demonstrating excellence across all aspects of the hospital’s operations.  Minden Medical Center was one of four facilities within LifePoint’s network of more than 70 hospitals across the country to earn this prestigious recognition. 

Each year, the High Five Award is awarded to four of LifePoint’s hospitals that have demonstrated extraordinary achievement in fulfilling the company’s High Five Guiding Principles:

  • Delivering high quality patient care;
  • Supporting physicians;
  • Creating excellent workplaces for our employees;
  • Taking a leadership role in our communities; and
  • Ensuring fiscal responsibility.

Since LifePoint’s founding in 1999, these five core guiding principles have influenced the Company’s actions and decision making and defined what communities can expect from LifePoint facilities as healthcare partners.

“I am honored that our team at Minden Medical Center has been recognized with a High Five Award,” said George E. French, III, chief executive officer of Minden Medical Center. “This award truly exemplifies our team’s determination to excel across each of our company’s guiding principles. Our staff, physicians, board and volunteers are committed to strengthening Minden Medical Center’s operations and advancing healthcare delivery in Webster Parish. We look forward to continuing this momentum into 2016 and beyond.”

As part of the award, the hospital received $100,000 from LifePoint, which will be used to invest in facility improvements and technology that will support the hospital’s ongoing growth and continuous enhancement of services to the community.

The award was accepted by Minden Medical Center’s leadership team on behalf of the entire hospital staff at LifePoint’s annual hospital leadership meeting on March 7 in Nashville, Tenn.
