United Hospital Fund hosts a number of special events each year to recognize outstanding leadership and voluntary efforts in the work of improving New York’s health care. Each provides opportunities to support UHF’s own work, while celebrating the dedication and important role of health care and community leaders and volunteers.
Bringing together health care, business, and community leaders, UHF's annual Gala honors extraordinary contributions to hospitals and health care in New York through three awards: the Health Care Leadership Award, the Distinguished Community Service Award, and the Special Tribute.
The 2017 Gala will be held on Tuesday, October 3.
