The Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) has issued a request for applications for the 2017 Fine Awards for Teamwork Excellence in Health Care. The 2017 Fine Awards will recognize teams of professionals in western Pennsylvania who provide innovative, quality improvement-centered treatment for mental health and substance use problems. Three winning teams, selected by a panel of judges, will each receive a $20,000 award.

The deadline to apply for the Fine Awards is March 1, 2017. Interested teams from Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Washington, and Westmoreland counties can apply by completing an online application on the JHF website. 

Since 2008, JHF has partnered with The Fine Foundation to recognize and reward teams that demonstrate exceptional performance around patient safety and quality improvement within their organizations. Winners of the Fine Awards will also serve as mentors for JHF’s 2017 Patient Safety Fellowship, which provides an opportunity for multidisciplinary students in health-related fields to learn JHF’s Perfecting Patient CareSM (PPC) quality improvement method, and apply their new knowledge and skills in real-world healthcare settings.
