Brace yourself: It's awards season

Jan 11, 2019 | News

2018 was a big year for Providence being recognized on the national, provincial and local level.

We owned the stage at the CCHL awards, showed up huge at the HEABC awards, and shone at the Quality Awards.

Who’s up for a repeat performance?

Here's what we have coming our way:

  • The CCHL awards are up first, with applications due by February 1:
  • Next up is the BC Health Awards. The call for submissions is yet to go out but it should be happening within the next few weeks, which means you can have a jump start on thinking about your current work and where it might fit within an award category. Here is last year's awards list to get the ideas going:
  • Then we roll into the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council (BCPSQC) Quality Awards, which usually announce their call for nominations in the spring:
  • And be sure to keep your eyes open for the call for our own internal awards, like the Faye Meuser Award, the “Best” Patient Safety and Quality Award, and our Mission and Keeing the Promise awards, which will be announced in PHC News in early February.

Daunting, maybe - but far from impossible

We have so many individuals, teams and programs that are involved in transformative work with established results -- and now are ready for recognition. While putting together a submission can feel like a signifigant undertaking, it is a great way to honour the people doing extraordinary work here, every day.

And it doesn't need to be something you create from scratch.

For example, did you apply for or win a Mission Award last year? Why not dust that submission off and use it for the basis to apply for a 2019 CCHL award?

Or did you apply for HEABC's Health Care Awards (AKA: the Golden Apple awards) last year? How about parlaying that into a BC Patient Safelty & Quality Council's Quality Award application? 

Support on standby

PHC’s Heath Care Awards Committee is committed to supporting you in your application to ensure it’s as solid and compelling as possible.

We encourage you to send us your nomination drafts - we’re happy to edit and review. And feel free to float us your potential nomination ideas for projects you’re working on or people you’re working with - we’re happy to give feedback on whether it has legs.  

Here’s to an excellent awards season here at PHC – you deserve it!
