Apply now for the 2018 Minister's Medal

The Minister’s Medal Honouring Excellence in Health Quality and Safety is a competitive, annual award program that recognizes excellent work done by health care partners across the province. Award recipients have demonstrated excellence in engaging patients as partners, as well as enhancing value and quality in our health care system.

The theme of this year's awards is Innovating Integration, which focuses on recognizing the innovative and transformative initiatives being undertaken across the province to improve patient and provider experiences, support better value, and improve health outcomes across the province.

Once again, the ministry will be awarding medals in three categories: one for teams working together to provide excellence in high-quality care; one for individual providers who have demonstrated dedication, vision and leadership in championing high quality care; and, one that recognizes the important contributions of patients, families, and caregivers who have undertaken innovative initiatives within their communities.
