Davies Award winners

I just got the word from HIMSS about the 2008 Davies Award winners.

Eastern Maine Medical Center, Bangor, Maine, is the only organizational winner this year.

Palm Beach (Fla.) Obstetrics and Gynecology, Oklahoma Arthritis Center, Edmond, Okla., and Cardiology Consultants of Philadelphia won HIMSS Ambulatory Davies Awards of Excellence.

For the first time, HIMSS added a Davies Community Health Award this year. Four organizations took home those honors: The Columbia Basin Health Association in Othello, Wash.; the White River Rural Health Center, Augusta, Ark.; and the Community Health Access Network in Newmarket, N.H.

The New York Children’s Health Project, supported by the Children’s Health Fund, won in the category of Community Health Organizations (CHOs) and Member CHOs.

HIMSS previously announced that the Cherokee Indian Hospital Authority in Cherokee, N.C., and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services had won Davies Public Health Awards of Excellence for 2008.
