Honoring the Nation’s Best in Healthcare

The 2019 Excellence in Healthcare Awards celebrate and honor those committed to improving healthcare for patients, employees, and physicians. These Awards are based on survey responses and identify organizations and individuals who achieve excellence throughout the year by improving patient experiences, healthcare employee engagement, and/or physician alignment and engagement.

“It is an honor to recognize these healthcare organizations with Excellence in Healthcare Awards for their deserving work,” said Joe M. Inguanzo, Ph.D., President and CEO of PRC. “It takes true dedication and determination to achieve this level of excellence in healthcare and each one of these organizations has demonstrated their commitment to making their hospital a better place to work, a better place to practice medicine, and a better place for patients to be treated.”
