Kathryn Edwards, MD

Awards, Honors, Achievements

Kathryn Edwards, MD, who holds the Sarah H. Sell and Cornelius Vanderbilt Endowed Chair in Pediatrics and is a professor of Pediatrics at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, has been awarded the 2020 John Howland Award, the highest honor given by the American Pediatric Society (APS). A member of the National Academy of Medicine, Edwards' work focuses on the evaluation of vaccines for the prevention of infectious diseases in adults and children. She has led many of the pivotal clinical trials of vaccines licensed in the past several decades and has played a major role in their implementation. Edwards is the third Vanderbilt faculty member to receive the John Howland Award, which has been given annually since 1952. The late Amos Christie, MD, was honored in 1979, and Mildred Stahlman, MD, received the award in 1996.

The Society for Vascular Surgery's Vascular Quality Initiative (SVS VQI) has awarded Nashville Vascular and Vein Institute (NVAVI) the maximum of three stars in the Registry Participation Program. The mission of the SVS VQI is to improve patient safety and the quality of vascular care delivery by providing web-based collection, aggregation and analysis of clinical data submitted in registry format for all patients undergoing specific vascular treatments. Participating centers can earn up to three stars based on actions that lead to better patient care, including completeness of long-term, follow-up reporting and initiation of quality improvement activities, among other criteria. "The VQI database allows us to continually improve by utilizing the knowledge gained by all the practices that participate in VQI nationwide," said Patrick Ryan, MD, FACS, founder of NVAVI.

Mental Health Cooperative of Nashville was recently honored with the "Mobile Crisis Award" by the American Association of Suicidology. MHC provides a comprehensive array of crisis services to the Middle Tennessee community for those experiencing behavioral health emergencies. MHC's Emergency Psychiatric Services continuum includes a Crisis Treatment Center, a 15 bed Crisis Stabilization Unit, an 8 bed Crisis Respite Unit and a 10 bed 23-hour Observation Unit.

The Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) recently announced the newest additions to the organization's Medical Advisory Board (MAB), including Jonathan N. Menachem, MD, director of Advanced Congenital Cardiac Therapies (ACCT), Heart Failure and Transplantation Section, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. ACHA MAB members play a crucial role in offering expert opinions on research and medical developments in ACHD to assure that organizational policies meet the highest standards of scientific need and accuracy.

All seven Middle Tennessee TriStar Health hospitals were awarded an 'A' in the spring 2020 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, a national distinction for providing safe care. The Leapfrog Group is an independent national watchdog organization committed to healthcare quality and safety. The Safety Grade is assigned to all general hospitals across the country and updated every six months, assessing how well the hospital prevents medical errors and other harms to patients. Maury Regional in Columbia also received an A grade. Ascension Saint Thomas Midtown and West, Nashville General, Vanderbilt University Hospital and Williamson Medical Center all received a grade of B.

For the third consecutive year, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) has named Brentwood-based Onlife Health as one of the Nation's Best and Brightest in Wellness® for 2019. The award honors companies and organizations that recognize and celebrate quality and excellence in employee and worksite health.
Realty Trust Group (RTG), a leading national healthcare real estate firm providing a full-spectrum of customized real estate solutions, was recently recognized as the #3 Outpatient Developer by the annual Revista / HREI Outpatient Healthcare Real Estate Development Report. In 2019, RTG completed seven healthcare facility projects totaling 209,077 square feet. This ranking marks RTG's second consecutive year ranking in the top 3.
