HAP Achievement Awards

Each year, HAP honors hospitals and health systems for their innovation, creativity, and commitment to patient care through our annual Achievement Awards. The primary goal of the awards program is to showcase and share member hospitals’ and health systems’ innovations and best practices.

Given the last 20 months, HAP wants to recognize the exceptionalism of our members and their extraordinary efforts during the pandemic response. This year’s award program will honor the crucial role members played during the pandemic to advance the entire Pennsylvania health care community, their local communities, and the collective HAP membership.
