Path to Excellence Award Program

2013 Path to Excellence Award Program

The Path to Excellence awards recognize the work of many people in each winning organization. The individuals involved come from a wide range of disciplines and skills, working together in coordinated teams and exerting effort over time to listen to their patients and respond to their needs. We know the top leaders of each award winning organizations are committed to improving quality and increasing patient-centered care within their facilities. We recognize that firm commitment from the top is a key driver of change, and these attitudes are reflected in the frontline work of the organization. The daily drive, commitment, and attentive thinking of individual staff members lead to creative changes that improve what patients experience when they rely on medical care.
