Nominations Open Through Feb. 18 for MHA Ludwig Community Benefit Award

The valuable role of Michigan hospitals and healthcare providers during the COVID-19 pandemic is unmistakable. Brave personnel throughout these facilities have worked for two years to care for the staggering number of patients coming through their doors.

Even during these difficult times, hospitals and health systems have continued to provide services that go beyond the care provided within their walls. To celebrate the best of the community benefits programs hospitals provide, the MHA is accepting nominations for its 2022 Ludwig Community Benefit Award until the close of business Feb. 18.

The award is named for Patric E. Ludwig, former MHA president and Bronson Healthcare Group president, and honors Michigan hospitals that demonstrate outstanding community benefit by improving the health and well-being of their communities through collaborative health, economic or social initiatives.

To assist the winning programs in their efforts to improve the health of their communities, the MHA Health Foundation’s Community Health Improvement Fund presents a $5,000 cash prize in conjunction with the award. 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.
