During the facility's 2007 Joint Commission survey, Memorial Health University Medical Center, Inc., in Savannah, GA, received high praise from a physician/administrator surveyor regarding its emergency management plan.

Memorial underwent a five-day survey with four surveyors. The Life Safety Code® specialist surveyed the hospital for one day; the administrator, who was also a physician, surveyed the hospital for three days.
