In collaboration with the Greater New York Hospital Association

The Quality Leaders Forum is a group of emerging and established quality leaders committed to improving the delivery of high-quality care in the greater New York area. Members are invited to network and discuss current issues in health care quality with nationally recognized quality leaders and to pursue opportunities for sharing best practices. 




The QLF network includes 60 graduates and faculty from the UHF/GNYHA Clinical Quality Fellowship Program and honorees from the UHF Tribute to Excellence in Health Care, representing over 30 health care organizations.
