2013 HAP Achievement Award: Recognized for Innovation in Health Care

From the public relations department of HAP

Nineteen of Pennsylvania's most innovative hospital programs - dealing with issues including patient satisfaction; workforce; public health and education; influenza, falls, and infection prevention; mortality reduction; oxygen therapy; and disaster preparedness - have been named winners of The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) 2013 Achievement Awards. Entries were received from hospital programs across the state.

"All of the programs entered are examples of the commitment hospitals and health systems make, every day, to their patients, communities, and employees," said HAP President and CEO Andy Carter. "The 19 awardees are among the most innovative and creative in the health care field, and we salute their accomplishments."

"HAP's Achievement Awards program began in 1978 as a way to recognize the innovation of Pennsylvania's health care organizations," Carter said. "HAP member hospitals and health systems look and operate very differently now than they did back then, particularly in this era of reform. But one thing has not changed: their commitment to quality and continuous improvement as they deliver care in their communities."


Chester County Hospital was among the 2013 Achievement Award winners in the Operational Excellence category. The hospital was recognized for its a hospital-wide security and safety training event, which was conducted with the help of 120 participants on December 11, 2012.
