For more than 20 years, America's Essential Hospitals has sponsored a member awards program - the Gage Awards
(named for association founder Larry S. Gage) -
to recognize member hospitals and health systems for implementing creative, successful programs and activities that boost patient care and meet community needs. More than 200 programs have been recognized as outstanding examples in areas such as quality improvement, patient safety, reducing health disparities, workforce improvement, using health information technology and improving the health of the community.
Each spring, members are invited to submit applications. Winners are selected by a committee of member experts and are recognized during our Annual Conference.
