The Ministry will award medals in three categories: 1-) for teams working together to provide excellence in high-quality care; 2-) for individual providers who have demonstrated dedication, vision and leadership in championing high quality care; and, 3-) for patients, families, or caregivers to recognize their innovative initiatives and importance in health care.

The theme of this year's awards is Innovating Integration, which focuses on recognizing the innovative and transformative initiatives being undertaken across the province to improve patient and provider experiences, support better value, and improve health outcomes across the province.
