The Surgical Hospital at Southwoods in Boardman was awarded the 2019 Pinnacle of Excellence Award and the 2019 Guardian of Excellence Award. 

The Pinnacle of Excellence Award recognizes top-performing clients from health care organizations across the country based on extraordinary achievement and maintaining a high level of excellence for at least three consecutive years. 

The Guardian of Excellence Award is presented annually to organizations that consistently perform in the top five percent for each reporting period during a year. Southwoods has won this award every year since its founding in 2013. 

Southoods was one of only three hospitals in Ohio to receive the Pinnacle of Excellence Award, one of 13 to receive the Guardian of Excellence Award and one of two to receive both awards. 

"These awards reflect our staff's unwavering commitment to improving the safety, quality, and experience of patient care," said Ed Muransky, Southwoods CEO. "They work diligently every day to perfect the patient experience, and I'm proud of their hard work and dedication."
