Anne Arundel Medical Center of Annapolis, Md., will receive the 2019 Carolyn Boone Lewis Equity of Care Award July 25 at the AHA Leadership Summit in San Diego for its efforts to provide equitable care and reduce health inequalities. Atrium Health in Charlotte, N.C.; Northwell Health in New Hyde Park, N.Y.; Rush University Medical Center in Chicago; and Sutter Health in Sacramento, Calif., also will be honored for their efforts to reduce health care inequities and advance diversity and inclusion. The AHA Institute for Diversity and Health Equity has renamed the award to honor the first African American and first hospital trustee to chair the AHA board, who was a tireless advocate for equity of care. “Hospitals and health systems that participate in the Carolyn Boone Lewis Equity of Care Award process demonstrate a commitment to improving health for all people,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “Their work is not only a moral imperative but it’s also the way in which hospitals will be positioned to succeed under population health and value-based care.” For more on the honorees and their achievements, see the AHA news release.
