Hospital Awards for Volunteer Excellence (HAVE)

The Hospital Awards for Volunteer Excellence (HAVE) program was established by the American Hospital Association (AHA) Board of Trustees to showcase outstanding volunteer programs. 

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

  • Highlight volunteers services that are engaged in improving health care.
  • Encourage service that exceeds expectations as a result of innovation, creativity and leadership.
  • Promote visibility and goodwill toward the hospital or health care system.
  • Promote collaboration among provider organizations and community service entities to improve the quality of life of local citizens.

Nominations are open to organizations that are institutional members of AHA.  The awards honor specific volunteer service areas or programs – not volunteer departments as a whole.
