Deadline Approaching for 2019 MHA Ludwig Award Nominations

Posted on February 08, 2019

Ludwig Community Benefit AwardFeb. 15 is the last day to submit nominations for the 2019 MHA Ludwig Community Benefit Award. The annual award recognizes MHA-member healthcare organizations that demonstrate community benefit by improving the health and well-being of their communities through collaborative health, economic or social initiatives. Last year’s award winners represent the various ways hospitals work outside their facilities to make their communities better places to live, work and play.

First presented in 1990, the award is named for Patric E. Ludwig, former MHA president and Bronson Healthcare Group president, and recognizes hospital programs that carry on the legacy of leadership and community partnership that Ludwig demonstrated throughout his life. 

In addition to the well-deserved recognition, the MHA Health Foundation’s Community Health Improvement Fund will provide the winning programs with a $3,000 cash award to assist in their efforts to improve the health of their communities. The fund was established in 2004 to support innovative community-based health improvement programs led by Michigan hospitals.

For more information, contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
