  • Armstrong Award for Excellence in Quality and Safety: Presented to a physician who partners with patients, families, colleagues and staff to optimize patient outcomes and eliminate preventable harm.
  • Excellence in Service and Professionalism: Awarded to a physician who actively promotes a culture that embraces, expects and rewards the delivery of patient- and family-centered care.
  • Best Consulting Physician: Presented to a physician who provides superior consulting or specialized services.
  • Innovations in Clinical Care: Presented to the physician, nurse and/or team that demonstrates a visionary approach to problem-solving and performance improvement.
  • Clinical Collaboration and Teamwork: Awarded to the team that engages colleagues in shared decision-making, fostering cooperation and open communication.

Each Johns Hopkins Medicine hospital as well as Johns Hopkins Community Physicians will select six winners after nomination and local committee review.
