Spring Hill, Florida (November 21, 2017) – Oak Hill Hospital announces that another Ambassador class was recently graduated. Oak Hill Hospital’s Ambassador program is designed to promote global understanding of hospital operations and enhances teamwork in cooperation across all internal departments.
Modeled after the Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Hernando Program, the Ambassador class meets once a month for the entire day and the program takes six months to complete. During class time participants visit various departments and receive an overview presented by the department director which consists of department goals and outcomes, financial information, strengths and challenges. Participants also receive a departmental tour including hands-on involvement.
The program began at Oak Hill Hospital in 2004. It was an idea brought forth by CEO Mickey Smith. Ambassador graduates are expected to use their knowledge to assume leadership roles in projects, become active in the community, and serve on committees and process involvement teams. The Ambassadors serve as hospital champions. The program has received rave reviews from graduates.
