HOPE and JOY Award - Updates for 2024 and beyond

Changes to awards, read below for details. 

HOPE and JOY Awards are presented by the Office of Patient Experience (OPE) to recognize the individuals and teams who deliver exceptional patient and family centered care. Check out a recap of the 2022 winners!

Please note, OPE has made some changes for the upcoming awards. OPE will present next awards during Patient Experience Week 2024 and continue that tradition in future years.

That means that starting this year, nominations for HOPE and JOY Awards will be open throughout the year. To be eligible for the 2024 award celebration, all nominations must be submitted by February 2024. All nominations submitted after February will be included for consideration in 2025.
