The Alliance’s annual celebration of innovation and excellence will return to the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy on June 20, 2017. As always, invitations to attend will be sent to a broad health care audience.

Together, we can celebrate our people and our pioneers and recognize what our awardees and member agencies: make life better for our thousands of patients and their families. In celebrating individual achievement, we shine a light on our collective accomplishments.

Two Opportunities to Shine:

  • Nominate a program, product, or operational change that has: A) Enhanced the well-being of patients, clients, or the community, B) Driven efficiency in operations or the health care system, or C) Enhanced the productivity or satisfaction of agency staff.
  • Nominate an employee or homecare supporter for a STAR Award. These awards celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of the everyday heroes in our midst who make incredible differences in the lives of their patients/clients and their families. Though there are too few opportunities to recognize all who deserve one, a STAR award brings with it some well-deserved recognition for both the agency and the individual.
