Michael J. Skolnik Award
In recent years, CHA and Citizens for Patient Safety partnered together for the Michael J. Skolnik Award for Patient Safety, an award that recognizes individuals or teams who have demonstrated exemplary dedication and leadership in advancing the quality and safety of health care for patients across Colorado.
The award is named for Michael J. Skolnik, who died in 2004 following complications related to medical error; his mother, Patty Skolnik, is founder of Citizens for Patient Safety. Each year, the honoree was recognized at the CHA Patient Safety Leadership Congress and received a $3,000 award.
