Patient Safety Hero Awards


The Patient Safety Hero Awards highlight members of the Horizon team who excel in their commitment to safety, their innovative approach to create change that enhances patient safety, their collaborative spirit that proves we are all leaders, yet work as a team and last, but not least, through valuing and understanding the role of safety concerns expressed by patients and their families.
