Baptist Golden Triangle receives ‘best practices’ award

Baptist Golden Triangle has been recognized by East Mississippi Community College’s Workforce Services for its workforce training, quality management and business practices.

The hospital was presented EMCC’s Workforce Services’ “Best Practices Award” at the college’s annual industry appreciation luncheon.

Baptist Golden Triangle is among several area businesses and industries who partner with EMCC’s Workforce Services to help meet its workforce training needs. Training can be tailored to the employee’s needs and provided at the EMCC campus, or the business or industry can identify subject area experts in-house to train onsite.

“Each project manager is asked to submit the names and recommendations for training partners that have provided exemplary commitment to training their employees,” explained EMCC Workforce Development Coordinator Chrystal Newman. “Baptist Golden Triangle’s commitment to training is evident through the quality of training I have monitored; the number of hours committed to training; and the investment of resources to provide the quality training and to have a dedicated, first-class training facility. In addition to investing in training its staff, Baptist Golden Triangle is a true partner in training our future health care professionals.”

“The medical field is constantly changing, and we have to adapt to advances in technology, medications and patient care. Our staff must stay prepared for any medical situation,” said Nicole Pounders, director of education at Baptist Golden Triangle.
