UNC Medical Center is requesting nominations by June 30 for its annual Quality and Safety Awards, to be held Oct. 13 at the Medical Center Improvement Council (MCIC) meeting. Janet Hadar, President of UNC Hospitals, and Dr. Tom Ivester, Chief Medical Officer, sponsor the awards.

To be eligible for the award, nominations should represent a team from the Medical Center (including Hillsborough Hospital, Wakebrook and Outpatient Services) that has shown sustained results from a quality improvement or patient safety initiative (COVID-related projects are eligible). The final selection of awarded teams will be announced by the end of August.

Awardees will be invited to a reception at the MCIC meeting in October and will receive individual plaques commemorating their achievements. Family members and team supervisors will be encouraged to attend.

Nominations should be submitted by June 30 at the following link: https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1GrwZNhHi4rzZIN

We know there are many outstanding teams who are improving patient care and we are eager to recognize these efforts.
