Five hospital-led partnerships to improve community health will receive the AHA Dick Davidson NOVA Award Thursday at the AHA Leadership Summit in San Diego. The winning programs are: Stark County Toward Health Resiliency for Infant Vitality and Equality (THRIVE), Canton, Ohio; Project Ujima, Milwaukee; Women-Inspired Neighborhood Network: Detroit; House of Mercy Homeless Center, Janesville, Wis.; and the Transforming Communities Initiative, Livonia, Mich. “Hospitals and health systems are increasingly bringing care and resources directly to where patients are, including outside of traditional settings,” said AHA President and CEO Rick Pollack. “By developing effective partnerships with all sectors of the community, this year’s AHA Dick Davidson NOVA award winners are true leaders who are innovating new ways to address some of our most pressing health challenges.” For more on the programs, see the AHA news release.
