PA Hospitals Encouraged to Submit Innovative Programs to 2019 HAP Achievement Awards
January 23, 2019
It’s no secret that Pennsylvania’s health care landscape is changing at an increasingly rapid pace and its hospitals and health systems are rising to that challenge through innovative programs to improve the quality of care, patient experience, and technology to meet the needs of the communities they serve. For more than 30 years, HAP has honored the creativity and commitment of Pennsylvania hospitals and health systems to their patients and communities through its annual Achievement Awards program.
HAP members are encouraged to review the 2019 Achievement Awards Call for Entries and submit their innovative patient-centered initiatives that improve health care quality and efficiency and the health of their communities by March 1.
Winners will be notified during early April and recognized at an awards luncheon during HAP’s 2019 Leadership Summit on May 23 for small, medium, and large organizations in the following categories:
- Community Champions
- Optimal Operations
- In Safe Hands
- Excellence in Care
In addition, the Living the Vision Award will be selected from project submissions that ultimately answer the question: “What are we doing to live the vision of a healthy Pennsylvania?”
In 2018, HAP named 12 Achievement Award winners from 91 entries. “A hospital’s work extends far beyond the four walls of its building. These facilities constantly are working to find ways to lift up their communities and revolutionize health care in Pennsylvania. This year’s HAP Achievement Award recipients represent the cutting edge of hospital innovation,” said Andy Carter, HAP president and CEO.
