Collaboration for Healthier Communities
Each year, the American Hospital Association honors as many as five programs led by AHA-member hospitals as “bright stars of the health care field.” Winners are recognized for their work to improve community health status in collaboration with other community stakeholders.
In 2018, the AHA NOVA Award was renamed in memory of Dick Davidson, who led the association as president and CEO from 1991 to 2006. Davidson championed the role of hospitals in improving the health of their communities and drove the creation of this award in 1994.
The AHA Dick Davidson NOVA Award is directed and staffed by the AHA’s Office of the Secretary. The 2020 application will be posted at www.aha.org/nova in late August and due Monday, Nov. 25. Visit the website for more information.
