“For Henry Ford Medical Group (HFMG), AMGA Foundation has
been an inspiring organization, focused on driving better health
across the 120 million patients cared for by AMGA members. Our
participation in and winning the Acclaim Award several years ago was
one of the pinnacle achievements of HFMG. The ability to participate
in Measure Up, Pressure Down® and Together 2 Goal® initiatives has
driven our own patient health status to amazing levels. This could
have only been possible by the work of AMGA Foundation; its
leadership on these efforts has been nothing short of outstanding!
“The Foundation Star award is cherished by HFMG. It reminds
us of the patients we serve and the dedication of our staff toward
improving the health of these patients. AMGA Foundation has made all
of this possible!”
