 About the Strength, Hope and Caring Program

The Strength, Hope and Caring Program rewards those who go well beyond expectations and whose actions reflect the core of who we are as an organization—one that provides Strength to people when they are suffering, Hope to the people we serve, and Care, even beyond the clinical sense of the word. 

There are four categories of Strength, Hope and Caring Awards: Clinical, Administrative, Physician/Non-physician Provider, and Team. Through this awards program, we are seeking to highlight the stories of employees who: Demonstrate special, compassionate care; inspire us all; demonstrate a personal outstanding commitment to our patients and colleagues; make a significant difference in one family's/patient's/colleague's experience.
