QIP is excited to announce the winners for the AGPAL & QIP Excellence Awards.

With six award categories open for nominations, our judging panel was wowed by the numerous stories of teamwork, innovation, safety and quality, and quality improvement initiatives. We thank everyone who took the time to submit a nomination.
