Deadlines Approaching for HANYS’ Quality and Community Health Awards
The deadlines are fast approaching for HANYS’ members to highlight their commitment to improving care to communities by submitting nominations for HANYS’ Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety and HANYS’ Community Health Improvement Award.
The application deadline for the Community Health Improvement Award is March 8; the Pinnacle Award application deadline is March 17.
Each year, HANYS provides its members an opportunity to honor their staffs’ superior efforts toward quality outcomes in patient and community care. By nominating programs, facilities help HANYS highlight provider excellence to policymakers, media, and the public, as all nominations are published and featured in HANYS’ recognition materials.
HANYS’ Pinnacle Award for Quality and Patient Safety--celebrating its tenth year--recognizes members’ significant achievements in quality and patient safety.
HANYS’ Community Health Improvement Award recognizes outstanding initiatives by members to improve the health and well being of their communities.
All members are eligible to apply for these awards. Electronic submission is required for both awards and application templates are available online. A public presentation of the awards will be held during HANYS’ Annual Membership Conference in June at The Sagamore in Bolton Landing. Contact: Sue Ellen Wagner and Kathleen Ciccone
