HOPE and JOY Awards

The HOPE and JOY Awards were established to formally recognize the ongoing patient and family centered care practices and initiatives that are happening each day at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital. Read about Evan Newport and the founding of the HOPE Awards.

Anyone can nominate a staff member, team, or family volunteer who has demonstrated ongoing commitment to the philosophy of Patient & Family Centered Care (PFCC) practices to win the Hope Award. Award winners are selected annually by PFCC Program committees and will be awarded a trophy to display in their care area, funds to attend a patient and family centered care conference, and encouragement to share their insight with internal leadership and in external venues.

Nominations for the 2016 HOPE and JOY Awards will be accepted through September 30th.
