IPRO Quality Awards:
Each year, IPRO recognizes outstanding performance by healthcare providers and stakeholders throughout New England with our Quality Awards Program.
The goal of the Quality Awards Program is to recognize members of the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) community who have consistently set themselves apart from others by delivering exceptional care and/or contributions to Network activities in the New England area throughout the year. The ESRD award categories align with the mission of IPRO ESRD Network of New England to promote healthcare for all ESRD patients that is safe, effective, efficient, patient-centered, timely, and equitable.
Nominations and voting for the IPRO ESRD Quality Awards were collected from the New England ESRD community during the months of June and July 2015. These three winners were selected by YOU, the New England ESRD community. Join us in congratulating your peers!
