Circle of Life Award


The Circle of Life Awards honor innovative palliative and end-of-life care in hospices, hospitals, health care systems, long-term care facilities, and other direct care providers.  The Circle of Life Awards seek to shine a light on programs and organizations that can serve as models or inspiration for other providers. The 2015 awards are supported, in part, by the California HealthCare Foundation, based in Oakland, California and Cambia Health Foundation.  Major sponsors of the 2015 awards are the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Health Association, and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization & National Hospice Foundation.  The awards are cosponsored by The American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association & the National Board for Certification of Hospice and Palliative Nurses & the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation, and the National Association of Social Workers.

The Circle of Life Award is administered by the Health Research & Educational Trust.
