The Hospital Awards for Volunteer Excellence (HAVE)

The Hospital Awards for Volunteer Excellence (HAVE) program was established by the American Hospital Association Board of Trustees to help hospitals attract and retain volunteers by recognizing outstanding contributions of organized volunteer programs.

In addition to acknowledging the value of volunteerism to individual lives and institutions, the awards program is designed to:

  • Encourage service that greatly exceeds expectations as a result of innovation, creativity and leadership
  • Promote visibility and goodwill toward the hospital or healthcare system
  • Increase allegiance and collegiality among volunteers
  • Promote collaboration among provider organizations and community service organizations that addresses the issues of managed collaboration and instructs volunteers on how to improve the quality of life in the community they serve.

Your organization is invited to participate by nominating an organized volunteer program. It is recommended that this nomination packet be directed to the appropriate staff - including volunteer and auxiliary leaders and directors of public relations, human resources and volunteer services - and that the decision on a nominee be a collective one. Only one nomination per member institution may be submitted.

The nomination deadline is September 26, 2014.  For more information, follow this link.
