Calling all innovative hospitals

Is your acute care hospital innovative? Have you created a service, customer satisfaction program, financial management initiative or instituted other changes you're proud of? Well, now is the time to brag.

This is the final call for hospitals to nominate themselves for our "Hospital Innovators" awards, which will honor facilities and health systems that have broken through some of the industry's tougher challenges--or found new ways to accomplish their mission. We're particularly intrigued by smaller community hospitals which have managed to break new ground without massive resources, but we'll consider all comers.

So if you'd like the world to know what your hospital can do, write to me and I'll check things out. I look forward to hearing from you! - Anne
