Honors Program


West Virginia’s hospitals seek to establish and maintain trust among providers,
policymakers and the public through actions, sensitivity, professionalism and
community-minded commitment to service. The Commitment to Excellence Honors
Program (Honors Program) is a way hospitals can be recognized for the outstanding
work they do in pursuit of these goals.
Program Overview
The objectives of the Honors Program are to: 
  • Reward successful efforts to develop and promote quality improvement activities.
  • Inspire hospitals to be leaders in improving the health of West Virginians.
  • Raise awareness of nationally accepted standards of care that are proven to enhance patient outcomes. 
The Honors Program will be updated annually to reflect the quality improvement
topics on which the WVHA Quality Committee has recommended hospital action in
the pursuit of excellence during the program year.
For each topic area hospitals will be recognized for their engagement and/or
implementation of work in that area. Level 1- Engagement recognizes hospitals
that are actively engaged in planning activities and are moving towards
implementation. While Level 2- Implementation recognizes hospitals that have
adopted practices, implemented policies, or are actively working to sustain a
previously adopted policy or program.
