Senator Kennedy joins BWH President Gary Gottlieb at the National Quality Health Care Award dinner.
Brigham and Women's Hospital shined as the center of attention in Washington, D.C., Wednesday evening with hospital President Gary Gottlieb accepting the 2006 National Quality Health Care Award during a dinner ceremony attended by national health care leaders.
"This award is a testament to the hard work of our teams at BWH who have created an environment that promotes a standard of excellence in health care. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work with the men and women who are the cornerstone of our commitment to quality and safety," Gottlieb said.
Gottlieb thanked Partners HealthCare President and CEO James Mongan and BWH Board of Directors Chairman Marshall Moriarty, who joined him in Washington, D.C., for their enduring commitment to excellence.
"BWH is grateful to Partners and Jim Mongan for his leadership through the Partners Signature initiatives that focus on quality and safety," Gottlieb said. "Also, a special thanks go to Marshall Moriarty and our board for their support and intimate involvement in our mission to deliver the very best health care to all."
U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy attended Wednesday's dinner and praised BWH for its commitment to quality. "Every revolution starts with leadership and courage," Kennedy said. "Our American revolution began in Boston, and the quality revolution in American medicine began right here at Brigham and Women's Hospital."
