One of the professionals who will be present at the event, Registered Nurse Karen Kansler of Good Samaritan Hospital is already familiar to many Greetings & Readings shoppers.

Recently, Good Samaritan Hospital earned the Delmarva Foundation Excellence Award for Quality Improvement from the Delmarva Foundation for Medical Care, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for Maryland. Good Samaritan, which also received the honor in 2009, is one of only eight Maryland hospitals to win the award in 2010.

"Delmarva is proud to recognize Good Samaritan Hospital as a recipient of the Delmarva Foundation Excellence Award for Quality Improvement," said Nancy Jane C. Friedley, MD, Delmarva medical director.

"Recipients of this award possess a passionate commitment to improving quality of care for their patients. Good Samaritan's leadership and staff have demonstrated significant and sustained quality improvement practices over the past year by receiving high marks for treating heart attack, congestive heart failure, surgical and pneumonia patients. We commend their achievements and look forward to our continued collaboration to improve the health of Maryland’s Medicare beneficiaries."

The Delmarva Foundation Excellence Award for Quality Improvement recognizes individual hospital performance improvement in four national inpatient clinical areas: acute myocardial infarction [AMI], heart failure, surgical care and pneumonia.
