Beaufort Memorial receives 2012 Gold Star award for employee quit tobacco efforts

Beaufort Memorial Hospital (BMH), has been recognized by the South Carolina Hospital Association (SCHA) and NC Prevention Partners (NCPP) for providing the highest standard of excellence in employee quit tobacco systems for the tobacco cessation resources offered to their employees. It is the first hospital in 2012 to receive the award; the hospital joins seven S.C. hospitals in achieving this level of excellence. Hospitals receiving this acknowledgment are considered Gold Star Hospitals as a part of the Working Well initiative. Funded by The Duke Endowment, managed by SCHA, and informed by NCPP’s success in developing infrastructure for effective worksite wellness programs in North Carolina, Working Well is an effort to improve the health of hospital employees across the state of South Carolina by establishing worksite wellness culture where the healthy choice is the easy choice.
