Hello Jackson VA Veterans, employees, volunteers and friends,
It is truly our honor to share with you an extraordinary achievement! In a recent report released by the Joint Commission, the G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center was named one of the nation’s top performers on key quality measures. We are one of only 405 hospitals, out of over 3,000 surveyed, being recognized for this achievement. We are also one of only 20 VA Medical Centers being recognized for this outstanding accomplishment.
Today, we also received notice from Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Eric Shinseki, and our VISN 16 Director, George Gray, expressing their congratulations on our Medical Center’s achievement.
Everything we do is in support of our most sacred mission to take care of Veterans. And while we certainly appreciate the plaudits, what is more important is that it personifies the outstanding care we provide to our nation’s heroes. So, on behalf of the rest of the leadership team, let me just say “Thank You” for all you do. When you go home after your tour ends today, you can go home knowing that the rest of the country is now aware of what we’ve known for a long time…and that is the Jackson VAMC is TOPS!!!
