The International Hospital Federation (IHF) announces the finalists of the 2019 IHF/Dr Kwang Tae Kim Grand Award and Excellence Awards in Corporate Social Responsibility, Leadership and Management in Healthcare, and Quality & Safety and Patient-centered Care.

Following an extensive review by the panel of judges composed of health leaders from around the world, 27 top entries from the four categories have been selected as finalists from which the Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merit Awards will be chosen.

“I am delighted and excited to see that the quality and standards of entries are very high this year”, says Dr Lawrence Lai, Chairman of the IHF Awards Committee. “With so many excellent entries, selecting the best among the best is indeed most challenging. Hence, there is no need to be disheartened even if you are not selected this time. To the Award winners, our heartiest congratulations for a job well done!”

Since the Awards was first presented in Chicago, USA in 2015, the IHF has been recognizing innovation, excellence, outstanding achievements and best practices of hospitals and healthcare organizations. Winning projects have benefitted from the IHF Awards with global recognition that inspires their teams to strengthen commitment to their causes, earns them generous donations to support their programs, as well as encourage others to aspire for improvement and eventually earn the badge for best practice.

This year’s winners will be revealed on 8 November 2019 during the 43rd World Hospital Congress at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre in Muscat. Gold Winners will be invited to present in a special session during the World Hospital Congress to share their winning programs and projects while Silver, Bronze Winners and Merit Awardees will be displaying posters at the Congress exhibition.
