By creating an excellent culture, our associates and physicians deliver great care and service, our quality is excellent and we are able to grow to meet the needs of the community,” said Tony Kouskolekas, PMC president. “This recognition celebrates Pelham Medical Center as one of the best employers in the healthcare industry, and it's an honor to receive that designation.”
