Rutland Regional Medical Center honored by the American Hospital Association

RUTLAND—The American Hospital Association (AHA) recently recognized Rutland Regional Medical Center for its 100 years of participation and leadership in the organization.

Osei Mevs, the Region 1 regional executive from the AHA, presented the organization with a commemorative 100-year award. Rutland Regional President and CEO Claudio Fort, along with members of the executive team, graciously accepted this recognition.

The AHA was founded in 1898, two years after the original Rutland hospital, and is a national organization representing hospitals, health care networks, patients and communities. They first began to admit institutional members in 1919, which means Rutland Hospital was one of the earliest members of the organization.

“This was a nice surprise,” said Claudio Fort. “We appreciate all that the AHA does on behalf of hospitals and hospital systems and appreciate the connection between their advocacy and improved health outcomes for our community.”
