Gage Awards

Through the Gage Awards, America’s Essential Hospitals recognizes member hospitals and health systems for successful projects to improve the quality of care and population health. The awards promote the spread of best practices and innovative programs to other organizations and support the association’s research, policy, and advocacy work by sharing member success stories with external audiences.

The 2020 Gage Awards were presented virtually on Aug. 19, 2020, during VITAL2020, the association’s annual conference.


2020 Gage Awards: Population Health

Gage Awards for population health recognize programs that aim to improve specific health outcomes for a defined population or community by addressing the social and economic factors that influence health. Population health can be defined as “the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group” (Kindig & Stoddart, 2003).
