Children’s Health Network recognized with 2019 Leadership in Quality Award
When he found out Children’s Health Network (CHN) had won the 2019 Leadership in Quality Award, Senior Vice President and CHN Executive Director Bob Finuf knew what they’d do with part of the award’s $5,000 prize money:
Make 23 replicas of the award’s trophy—one for each of Children’s Health Network’s participating practices.
“It’s the practices that have done the heavy lift in order to achieve the aggregate results that we have realized so far. It’s their work this award recognizes," Finuf said.
The Leadership in Quality awards are presented annually by the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative and the Kansas Foundation for Medical Care, Inc. to health care providers and health care organizations to recognize leadership in quality improvement and patient safety. A cash prize of $5,000 is presented to the grand prize winner, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the KAMMCO Foundation.
The awards were presented at the 2019 Summit on Quality in Wichita by Jerry Slaughter on behalf of the KAMMCO Foundation board of directors.
