What Our Members Say

“To us, the Acclaim Award criteria is blueprint for delivering excellent care. It sets a high bar so getting over that bar requires us to hold ourselves to an equally high standard. Transforming care delivery takes considerable commitment and resources, so receiving the award is an especially satisfying recognition of all the hard work everyone at UW Medicine contributed. Although transforming care delivery is a never-ending journey, we view this as a very important milestone.”
– David Flum, M.D., M.P.H., Associate Chief Medical Officer, University of Washington Physicians (formerly)
2019 Acclaim Award Recipient
