The Excellence in Health Care Award for Quality Improvement Champions was established by UHF in 2019 to honor extraordinary personal leadership to improve quality of care, patient safety, and patient experience. Honorees are selected by a wide range of health care organizations—hospitals, long-term care facilities, independent practice associations, and more—across the greater New York metropolitan region for their vision and accomplishments. 

Through this awards program, UHF intends to recognize and nourish health care innovation and improvement aimed at achieving the highest quality patient care.

The awards are presented annually at the Tribute to Excellence in Health Care, an awards luncheon held in May. A full list of the 2020 honorees is here.
