The UPHS Quality and Safety Awards are longstanding opportunity for our hospital teams to formally celebrate their achievements in quality and patient safety over a 12 month period. This Award is designed to acknowledge UPHS departments who have exhibited leadership and innovation in activities that ensure high quality clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, patient safety, and cost efficiency.
Winning applications are reviewed and selected by a multidisciplinary committee – there were 111 submissions for 2014 – using a standard scoring methodology. Winning teams were officially awarded at a ceremony in January. Congratulations to all the PAH winning teams and to our colleagues throughout the UPHS!
