Harrisburg, PA (February 28, 2023) – The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) is recognizing 12 projects led by Pennsylvania health care teams that embody hospitals’ mission to provide high-quality care and improve their communities’ health.
Started in 1978, HAP’s annual Achievement Awards program recognizes hospitals and health systems that are employing innovative approaches to strengthening the safety and quality of care, enhancing operations and patients’ experience, and partnering with their communities to address public health needs. This year’s winners were selected from 82 entries.
“Pennsylvania hospitals and health systems are dedicated to not just treating illnesses and injuries but being partners in improving the health of their patients and communities,” HAP President and CEO Andy Carter said. “These award-winning projects exemplify the extraordinary work of Pennsylvania’s hospital community to enhance Pennsylvanians’ health; advance health equity; and improve the quality, delivery, and safety of care.”
Entries are judged in three size divisions, resulting in up to three awards in each of the four categories: Community Champions, Optimal Operations, In Safe Hands, and Excellence in Care. The Living the Vision Award—celebrating innovation and bold interventions that transform the patient experience, address overall health, and improve value—is selected from the entire pool of entries across all size divisions.
The 2023 Achievement Award winners are:
Community Champions Award
Optimal Operations Award
In Safe Hands Award
Excellence in Care Award

Winning teams will be recognized during HAP’s annual Leadership Summit, scheduled for April 11 and 12 in Harrisburg.
